As an employer, do I need to purchase WIA insurance?

Are you as an employer already familiar with the WIA insurance? If an employee becomes incapacitated for work, as an employer you are obliged to continue paying your employee's salary for two years. If, after these two years, your employee is still unfit for work, he or she enters the Work and Income (Capacity for Work) Act (WIA). He will then receive a WIA benefit. As an employer, you can take out WIA insurance for your employees. WIA insurance is a supplement to the WIA benefit that your employee receives in the event of long-term occupational disability. In that case, your employee has an extra financial safety net.

As an employer, am I obliged to take out WIA insurance?

No, you are not obliged to take out WIA insurance. WIA insurance is a voluntary insurance that you can take out to provide your employees with more financial security in the event of long-term incapacity for work. You can offer WIA insurance to your employees collectively. They can then choose whether or not they want to participate in the insurance. Always check your collective labor agreement. Although there is no legal obligation to take out WIA insurance, some collective labor agreements stipulate that this insurance must be taken out.

As an employer, why take out WIA insurance?

WIA insurance is voluntary, not compulsory. As an employer, you therefore choose whether or not to take out WIA insurance for your staff. However, WIA insurance is a useful insurance. It is a supplement to the statutory WIA benefit. By taking out WIA insurance, you are giving your employees more financial security.

For both employer and employee, WIA insurance has several advantages:

  • The employee's income is supplemented
  • The insurer offers assistance in the reintegration of the employee
  • WIA insurance contributes to the financial well-being of your employees
  • WIA insurance is a good secondary condition for your employees and is known as a sign of good employment practices
  • The premium of a WIA insurance is tax deductible
  • The benefit is stable in value
