Receive transitional allowance from statutory accident insurance during occupational rehabilitation

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

You will receive a transitional allowance as a result of an accident at work or commuting accident or a recognized occupational disease if you are taking part in measures to help you participate in working life, i.e. occupational rehabilitation. The transitional allowance is intended to compensate for the lack of income during rehabilitation and thus secure your livelihood and, if necessary, that of your family. In certain cases, you can also receive transitional allowance between and after benefits for participation in working life.

You do not have to submit an application. Your competent employers' liability insurance association or accident insurance fund will check possible claims on its own initiative ("ex officio").

The amount of the transitional allowance depends on your last income from work or your professional qualifications as well as your family circumstances (child or need for care of relatives).

Your employer's liability insurance association or accident insurance fund will pay the statutory social insurance contributions while you are receiving transitional allowance.

If you require more detailed information on the calculation or further information on the transitional allowance, please contact your employers' liability insurance association or accident insurance fund.


Process flow

The entitlement period and the amount of the transitional allowance under statutory accident insurance are determined ex officio by your employers' liability insurance association or accident insurance fund.

You can also contact your employers' liability insurance association or accident insurance fund online or by post.
