New study by WIFO economists Serguei Kaniovski and Thomas Url
In Austria, only 4 percent of employees have private occupational disability insurance – in Germany and the USA one
third each. Additionally, the sums insured in Austria are quite low. A new WIFO study by Serguei Kaniovski and Thomas Url
shows that young people with a steep professional career can particularly benefit from private insurance. For most gainfully
employed persons the state pension coversMore
70 percent of the last net-income in the event of occupational disability.
