According to the Council of States, the national Council has agreed in principle that persons bodies with false information in insurance, have to bear the additional costs of observations.
unlike the Council of States he considers it necessary to clarify that the more costs are "passed only in a reasonable manner". The cost can also be on supervised Insured is transferred, if an insurance benefit "was in some other illegal performance". This formulation was a minority too vague. She found, however, in the Council.
The law on the General part of social insurance law (ATSG) will be revised since its introduction in 2003, for the first Time. It applies to the old - age and survivors ' insurance, invalidity insurance, supplementary benefits, health and military insurance, income compensation act and the family allowances. The exception is the occupational Pension.
the aim of the Revision are different concerns from the Parliament, case law and doctrine from the past 15 years. In addition, it comes to the elaboration of anti-abuse.
No funds while prison
So, the national Council decided that the insurance benefits may be suspended when someone escapes the prison. Thus, the large chamber is slightly more stringent than the Federal Council and the Swiss Council of States. This was in the text of the law with a Can-formulation, that the only way for this Expose. The power is necessary, however, during the time of the penalty or measures of enforcement necessarily prevented, said Thomas Aeschi (SVP/ZG) called the minority from SVP, BDP and CVP representatives. It does not make sense, if someone is in prison for tax receive benefits. The national Council followed him with a 92 to 83 votes.

For such settings, moreover, uniform rules should apply. A prerequisite is a reasonable suspicion that the services obtained unlawfully, or that Reporting or monitoring obligations have been breached.
the Commission, however, the question of when a suspicion was well founded, are not limited to, can be resolved, said Silvia Schenker (SP/BS). They demanded the deletion of the article, however, was dismissed with 127 to 50 votes.
The national Council will also relieve the burden with a Change in the law by the cantonal courts, by creating a differentiated cost-obligation is introduced. As a result, the Parliament expects a decrease in the number of complaints to the cantonal insurance courts. This cost is duty, there was, as yet, only in the case of disability insurance.
Facultative Referendum for agreement
As the Council of States, it also rejects the large chamber, of the social security agreement to exclude from the optional Referendum. This had been proposed by the Federal Council. For the majority of the national Council, however, this would be a removal of democratic rights.
Barbara Gysi (SP/SG) argued in vain that the Federal Council would like to record existing practice into law. Since it was a standard agreement, make it make sense, if this would be approved by means of a Federal decision. Berset clarified that the agreement only in the Treaty country change.
