The Board of Directors of direct statutory sickness fund BIG has decided in its meeting that, due to the very good situation with the surplus, that they intend to make a reward payment to its members. This is expected to take place in January. The plan is a premium of between 80-140 Euros.
„We want for our members to not only benefit from very good additional services such as osteopathy and an extended bonus program, but also from the very good financial situation of the BIG“ said René Scheer, Chairman of the Board of BIG. (Quote translated by Kon.Media)
Scheer also noted that, with the loss of autonomy of the fund and contributions, it would not be possible to share the economic benefits by a corresponding contribution rate reduction to the members of BIG.
