My wife and I are in the retirement age. We get supplements for the health insurance premiums. Together this makes about 800 francs a month. Now a longtime friend of us died. He leaves us with a monthly pension of 3,000 francs. We have to expect now that you've already received EL repay?
no, you don't have to worry. Who is lawfully supplementary benefits (EL), it does not need to pay back. You and your wife to stay, even of a refund spared, if they should make a larger Inheritance.
Starting in 2021, although there is a refund obligation. You will not be affected but the EL-covers trays and recipients themselves, but their heirs. This must gutters EL from the estate of the late EL-Remuneration and pensions to pay back. Provided that the discount is greater than 40000 Swiss francs.
you and your wife are, however, obliged to report to the "pension" that lets you use the deceased friend behind, immediately the EL-authority. The authority calculated on the basis of their new income situation formally its claim to EL, and adjusts the payments. Your claim on EL expire in the time you the monthly amount of your friend is entitled to.
