Is WIA insurance mandatory?

WIA insurance is not mandatory insurance. It is a voluntary insurance that you, as an employer, can take out for your employees to offer them extra financial security. You can offer WIA insurance to your employees collectively. Your employees then decide for themselves whether they want to participate in the insurance or not. WIA insurance provides your employees with a supplement to the statutory WIA benefit when they are unfit for work for more than 2 years. Please note, although the insurance is not required by law, some collective labor agreements stipulate that a WIA insurance must still be taken out.
