What do you need to know if you have been sick for nearly two years and wish to apply for a "WIA" benefit (a benefit under the Work and Income (Capacity for Work) Act)? What can you expect? What are your rights and obligations? We have listed the most important information for you.
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.
