Work ability reforms


Lisatud 21.04.2016

2016 sees the launch of work ability reforms in Estonia creating a new working ability support system. The goal is to change people’s attitudes towards those with decreased working ability and help them find and secure employment. The Estonian Unemployment Insurance Fund will continue providing the services it currently offers for people with decreased working ability, adding several new services in January 2016.

All other services will, of course, continue to be available: search & selection, provision of advice on job seeking, work placement and training, etc. Your personal consultant at the Unemployment Insurance Fund will help you determine which services will be most helpful for you.

Working ability assessment

As of 1 July 2016, the Unemployment Insurance Fund will launch the working ability assessment of people with decreased working ability and the payment of working ability allowance.

Working ability allowance

The Unemployment Insurance Fund will start assessing working ability and paying working ability allowances on 1 July 2016.

In 2016 the fund is only assessing the working ability of and paying working ability allowance to those who have not been assessed as having incapacity for work in the last five years. If a reassessment of permanent incapacity for work has been scheduled for you in 2016, you must still contact the Social Insurance Board, which will determine your permanent incapacity for work and pay a pension for incapacity for work in accordance with the current rules.
