What do you need to know when you become sick and may qualify for a sickness benefit ("Ziektewet-uitkering")? Which requirements do you have to meet? And what are your rights and obligations? We have listed the most important information below.
Please note: while we have translated this information for you, all further communications will be in Dutch. This includes the texts on our website, our application forms, and all meetings with UWV Employee Insurance Agency. If you have difficulty understanding Dutch, you can always ask someone to help you out. You can also bring someone with you to meetings.
