Handling of bank account details
Members of the personnel who are paid by the Organization and hold a contract of three months or more, are paid from the payroll. Payments are made in Swiss francs into an account held with a bank located either on the CERN site (Meyrin or Prévessin) or off the CERN site in Switzerland.
Users, COAS or Visiting Scientists who are receiving subsistance payments from CERN, via EDH claims, are paid into their bank account. Exceptionally, if they do not hold a bank account in Switzerland or elsewhere, payments may be made in cash (further information is available in the procedure concerning payment and reimbursement forms - EDH Claims).
