All about Your Health & Life Insurance

Welcome to the website of the UN Health and Life Insurance Section (HLIS). We trust that this site provides you with everything you need to know about UNHQ-administered health & life insurance, including the onboarding process, plan maintenance and transition after your retirement.

It is the common responsibility of all plan participants of the self-funded UNHQ-administered health plans to safeguard the sustainability of these plans, funded by all plan participants and the Member States. This website allows staff members and retirees to be fully informed of the insurance benefits as well as ways to contribute to reducing costs. You will have access to reference material such as guidance material from Third-Party Administrators (TPAs), insurance rate simulators, checklists, brochures, forms and updates as well as various Toolkit pages designed for the specific needs of each of our more than 170,000 plan participants worldwide.

Should you have personal questions regarding the health and life insurance plans, please note that HLIS does not provide in-person client services during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The Client Service desk (Room FF-300) will be closed to staff members and retirees to protect both our clients and our HLIS colleagues. However, we are still able to provide client services through our dedicated mailboxes (hlis@un.org for staff members and ashi@un.org for retirees). 

Enjoy your learning journey!
