When you feel good, you have the resources to do your job. If your work capacity weakens, apply for rehabilitation. Vocational rehabilitation comes in many forms. We provide rehabilitees with financial support. You have a good chance of returning to work once you are rehabilitated. As many as 75% of rehabilitees return to working life.
If you already have a preliminary decision on rehabilitation or an approved rehabilitation plan, read more about your income during rehabilitation. Important matters for students in vocational rehabilitation and a checklist can be found in the student’s section.
