Re: Accident on maternity leave /accident insurance question

View Post
When your child is born you are entitled to daily allowances under:
• unemployment insurance;
• disability insurance;
• accident insurance;
• military insurance, or to
• compensation payments for persons performing military or civilian service,
maternity benefit will take precedence over these benefits and will come to at least the same amount as the daily allowance you were receiving

If you receive maternity benefit as an employee, you will continue to be covered by mandatory accident insurance while you are on maternity leave.
So in your case you will continue to benefit from the maternity benefits for the whole maternity leave. After, if eligible and still unable to work, you will receive the accident insurance benefits.

Mandatory accident insurance benefits don't end with unemployment.

Great, thank you so much. Then I'm not panicking. I was not sure how this works and my company also did not inform me about this. The situation is bad enough as it is, with a new baby in the house
Happy new year!
