Family

Pregnancy and birth

Family planning is a significant step for most people. The SBK will be your reliable partner that will support you before, during and after your pregnancy. But also after birth we stay on your side: Subscribing to our SBK-Familienbegleiter, our newsletter for families, online enables you to always keep an eye on important check-ups and vaccination recommendations. 

Your SBK advantages:

  • You receive selected additional preventative examinations during pregnancy and will be reimbursed for an allowance for midwife on-call services
  • You can take part in antenatal and involution classes
  • Decide for yourself if you want to deliver in a hospital, a birthing centre or at home.
  • If necessary, we will organise household help for you
  • All medication required during pregnancy are free of charge for you
  • Together with your employer, SBK will jointly pay the maternity benefit between six weeks before and eight weeks after birth

By the way: If you have urgent questions, our "Health Helpline for Expectant Mothers & Children" is available for you on a 24/7 basis. Your personal client advisor will be glad to personally discuss subjects such as parents' allowance or sickness benefits for childcare with you.

SBK Family Insurance

Your family, too, is in the best hands with us: Spouses and children without an income of their own can usually be co-insured free of charge through the SBK family insurance. Benefit from numerous additional services in relation to family planning and paediatric check-ups as well as for the care for sick children. 

Household help

If, for example, a situation arises in which you are not available to care for your family, we can in many cases organise household help for you – so that you can get well quickly and be there again for your children.

Sickness benefit for children

In order to be able to care for your sick child at home, SBK will pay sickness benefits for children as financial compensation. The health insurance will pay part of your gross salary while you're at home, if your child is covered by a statutory health insurance and no one else is available to care for the child.
