UWV has core tasks in four areas:

  • employment – helping the client remain employed or find employment, in close cooperation with the municipalities;
  • social medical affairs – evaluating illness and labour incapacity according to clear criteria;
  • benefits – ensuring that benefits are provided quickly and correctly if work is not possible, or not immediately possible;
  • data management – ensuring that the client needs to provide the government with data on employment and benefits only once.
