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.
As of 1 January 2017, working ability will solely be 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 working ability and pays working ability allowances to those with partial or no working ability.
