USB

Thanks to a close collaboration between the Union Syndicale Bruxelles (USB) and Concordia, an insurance program has been put in place allowing the USB members to obtain very large insurance guarantees for a very attractive price.

We are pleased to present to you on this page of our website the results of these efforts: a package of insurance policies that really do offer 'more for less', that is to say very extensive insurance coverage at very competitive rates. By clicking on the hyperlinks you will access an information leaflet that sets out the range of insurance policies offered together with the possibility of combining them in order to take advantage of additional benefits. [Links to Fidea leaflet and AWC EuroSanté leaflet]

 

Beneficiaries of the package

The insurance policies are open to all officials and other agents of the European institutions who have their residence in Belgium. This residence condition does not apply in the case of EuroSanté supplementary healthcare insurance. 

The insurance policies are also open to pensioners, except for the Eurosanté, the health insurance policies. Personal accident insurance can be subscribed to up to the age of 65 but cover terminates at the age of 75.

IMPORTANT : members of Union Syndicale Brussels and colleagues who are ready to become members of it benefit from additional advantages (see below).
