Vocational rehabilitation options
When illness starts to impede your work, address the issue early on. We can support you in returning or continuing to work through vocational rehabilitation.
There are many ways to support returning to work
When you wish to continue in your job or return to work after sick leave first discuss the issue with your employer and occupational health care service. Find out whether it would be possible for you to be granted Kela’s partial sickness allowance or whether you could participate in a work trial organised by the occupational health care service. Or would it be possible to adapt your tasks so that you could continue with your job?
If these are not helpful, consider vocational rehabilitation. Apply to your earnings-related pension company for vocational rehabilitation. If it is Ilmarinen, apply to us for it. We can support you in returning or continuing to work through vocational rehabilitation when other measures are not helpful.
