Retirees and Survivors

Welcome to the ASHI webpage!

The After Service Health Insurance (ASHI) programme of the United Nations (UN) was established in 1967 as part of social security benefits to retiring staff members of the Organization. It is an optional coverage which is only available as a continuation of previous active service coverage in a contributory health insurance plan of the UN.

The UN ASHI programme currently covers 10,000 plus retirees and their eligible dependants worldwide.

You could read more on the eligibility requirements and other aspects of the programme in the Administrative Instruction on ASHI ST/AI/2007/3.

Over the years, the cost of ASHI has spiraled due to increases in enrollment, medical utilization, and expenses associated with medical treatments. It is therefore of utmost importance that we all better utilize the medical/dental coverage available to us. Understanding our programme better is one step towards better using it.

We hope to make this webpage your main resource for everything related to ASHI. Please do take the time to provide feedback/comments in order to help us provide relevant information to you. Thank you.
