The Unemployment Insurance Fund started assessing work capability and paying work capability allowances on 1 July 2016.
In 2016 the fund only assessed the work capability of and paying work capability allowance to those who had not been assessed as having incapacity for work in the previous five years.
As of 1 January 2017, work capability is solely assessed and allowances paid by the Unemployment Insurance Fund. If a reassessment of permanent incapacity for work has been scheduled for you in 2017 or thereafter, you must contact the Unemployment Insurance Fund as the date of the reassessment draws closer. Under the new rules, the Unemployment Insurance Fund assesses work capability and pays work capability allowances to those with partial or no work capability.
