Legal advice for survivors over the age of 18

The offering from Childhood Cancer Switzerland is available throughout Switzerland and provides answers to questions on invalidity insurance (IV), social security issues and the consequences that a reduced workload can involve. Our partner organisation Procap has lawyers who are already familiar with the issue of survivorship and can thus provide targeted support to those affected.

The legal consultation service answers questions on rehabilitation, aids and other topics, and is seen as an additional form of support in important decision processes.

The free and non-binding initial consultation takes place in the Procap offices or online, depending on the arrangement, and lasts about 30 minutes.

Anyone interested should please contact Zuzana Tomasikova directly (Phone: +41 61 270 44 10). The Head of the Survivors’ Centre coordinates the legal advice service and would be happy to forward your inquiries.

Those affected are given advice and support in legal issues concerning social security, education and the situation regarding future professions. The legal service contributes to the further expansion of multidisciplinary follow-up care at UKBB and to highlighting possibilities for action that go beyond purely medical aspects.
