    Privileged inheritance status

    Life insurance capital does not form part of the deceased’s estate, but is paid out to the beneficiary directly. Beneficiaries who are family members receive the insurance benefit even if they renounce their inheritance.

    Privileged status in the event of bankruptcy

    Life insurance capital can be neither pledged nor included in a bankruptcy estate.
  • PostFinance offers life insurance as part of your private retirement savings (pillar 3a/3b) in cooperation with AXA Winterthur.
  • With life insurance policies offered in cooperation with AXA Winterthur, policyholders enjoy privileged protection. Insurance companies are obliged to cover claims under life insurance policies at all times as these are regarded as tied assets. If AXA Winterthur were to become insolvent, securities (mathematical reserve and surplus share) from ongoing contracts would primarily be transferred to another insurance company which would take over responsibility for continuing the policies. If no transfer to a new insurance company takes place, the entitled persons receive the contractually guaranteed redemption value. Insurance companies are subject to supervision by the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA), which ensures the solvency of insurers and protects insured persons against abusive practices.
