General Information

Joint Sickness Insurance Scheme

The PMO service responsible for the Joint Sickness Insurance Scheme has created a new Centre of Excellence, which includes a team specifically dealing with disability. 

In December 2017, a first Conference on Disability was organised by this service. The conference brought together, for the first time,  a number of Belgian organisations representing both the public, private and voluntary sector which offer support and services to people with a disability.

  • Further lunchtime sessions are planned which will focus on specific disabilities.
  • Information will be announced shortly for a first series of six half day training sessions specifically aimed at parents of children with autism.

The JSIS team dealing with disability and serious illness has started holding monthly  information sessions for members of the insurance scheme. These take place in the offices of the PMO at MERO.

These half day sessions are intended for  people  who have children or family members with a disability, whether recognised or not by their employer or by the Belgian authorities, as well as to those who have a disability themselves.

Participants have the opportunity to discuss, in complete confidence,  their individual situation with all the relevant services (JSIS staff  specifically working in disability service, PMO staff from the unit dealing with rights and privileges for active staff and pensioners, a social worker from DG HR, and a representative of the Belgian “Service Public Fédéral”, who can answer questions on recognition of disability in the Belgian system).

The feedback from the participants to  the initial sessions has been extremely positive.

Anyone interested in attending future sessions, or who has questions regarding the medical insurance scheme with regards to disability  can  contact Sarah Ironside (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)

Pour les parents qui contesteraient les décisions des conseils de classe ou autre, vous pouvez introduire un recours :

Voici les étapes à suivre :

La mission de la chambre de recours consiste à contrôler la légalité des actes pris par les organes des Ecoles européennes et à assurer une protection juridictionnelle uniforme à toutes les personnes concernées, dans le domaine des compétences qui lui sont confiées.

Elle est composée de personnalités offrant toutes les garanties d’indépendance et d’impartialité et possédant des compétences juridiques notoires, afin d’assurer expertise et rigueur juridique.

La procédure devant la Chambre de recours se veut transparente, rapide et efficace, dans le strict respect du débat contradictoire et des droits de la défense, tout en tenant compte des contraintes particulières liées notamment au multilinguisme et à la nature des litiges qui doivent être résolus dans des délais respectueux du rythme scolaire.
