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.
In 2016 the fund is only assessing the working ability of 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 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.
