Reimbursement of transfer costs by the agricultural accident insurance company

The Agricultural Workers' Compensation Board may reimburse you for the cost of a transfer.
This applies to

  • surviving dependents as well as
  • other persons who have paid for the repatriation.

You do not have to apply for reimbursement. The Agricultural Employer's Liability Insurance Association will check your entitlement to reimbursement on its own initiative.

In principle, you do not have to apply for reimbursement of the transfer costs. The entitlement to reimbursement is examined ex officio by the Agricultural Employer's Liability Insurance Association.
The Agricultural Employer's Liability Insurance Association will inform the possible beneficiaries known to it to enable them to file their claims. You can still contact the Agricultural Employer's Liability Insurance Association.

If you pay for a repatriation, you will be reimbursed by the Agricultural Accident Insurance Fund if:

  • the deceased person was insured with the Agricultural Accident Insurance Fund
  • reimbursable repatriation costs were actually incurred by the Agricultural Accident Insurance Fund
  • the death was the consequence of an insured event. These include:
    • occupational accidents, commuting accidents, occupational diseases
  • the person did not die at the place of his/her permanent family residence
  • the deceased was staying there for reasons related to the insured activity or to the consequences of the insured event
  • Proof of payment and amount of transfer costs, for example, an invoice

There are no costs for you.

You do not have to meet any deadlines.

Usually immediately, maximum 4 to 6 weeks
