What do you have to know when you become sick and may be entitled to a sickness benefit ("Ziektewet-uitkering")? What are the requirements? What are your rights and obligations? We have provided a short overview of the most important information.
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.
