Rehabilitation plan

The aim of vocational rehabilitation is to find a way for you to remain in working life, if you are able to work despite having an illness or injury. Submit your rehabilitation plan in the Online Service once you have received a positive decision confirming your right to rehabilitation and your plan is ready, or complete the online form to request the assistance of a work coach to draft the plan.

A proper rehabilitation plan is an essential part of successful rehabilitation. It’s a good idea to begin drafting your rehabilitation plan as soon as possible after receiving your preliminary decision. Drafting a plan calls for a proactive attitude and co-operation with the occupational health service and HR representatives of your workplace.

What exactly is a rehabilitation plan?

A rehabilitation plan is a written plan outlining the process to get you back into working life or to continue in working life despite any health challenges you are facing.
