Current situation in GPAFI


Groupement de Prévoyance et d’Assurance des Fonctionnaires Internationaux

Provident and Insurance Group of International Officials

  In January 2013, UNOG Administration informed GPAFI of their wish to exclude GPAFI from the Palais des Nations and remove the international civil servant status of its staff. For the reasons outlined in this paper, we believe this decision is unjustified and detrimental to the interests of UN staff. We ask that it be rescinded. 

 A recent study undertaken by Deloitte has revealed that if this happens and GPAFI becomes an association subject to Swiss law, within as little as six years GPAFI could possibly be no longer financially viable and would have to close.
