Apply for benefits for participation in working life for those with statutory accident insurance


If you are no longer able to carry out your previous activity as before due to health problems due to an accident at work or an occupational disease, you will receive benefits for participation in working life. Benefits that can be provided by your accident insurance institution are, for example:

  • Assistance for the resumption or continuation of previous activities
  • Support in the implementation within the previous company to another activity
  • Support when starting a job in another company
  • Retraining
  • professional adaptation, further training and qualification
  • Admission to a workshop for people with disabilities

After an accident at work or an occupational disease, the statutory accident insurance works by all appropriate means to enable the return to the previous workplace. If it is not possible to return to the existing job, work is being done to maintain at least the employment relationship with the previous employer. If this is also not possible, a rapid and sustainable integration into the general labour market is sought.

Children and young people are also provided with benefits for participation in the event of an insured event. The aim is, among other things, to enable those affected to receive a general education as well as an appropriate occupation or gainful employment.
You do not have to submit an application. The accident insurance institution examines possible claims ex officio.

  • After reporting an accident at work with the threat of permanent restriction of the exercise of the previous activity, the rehabilitation manager will contact you.
  • He or she discusses with you and, if you agree, with your employer the further possibilities for maintaining the activity.
  • If you can no longer carry out the previous activity even with aids or support, he or she will discuss the other alternatives with you.
  • If the problems in the workplace occur later, without the need for current medical treatment, contact your rehab manager.
  • You can also submit an informal request for review of measures to participate in working life.
    • You can also submit the application to your accident insurance institution using the online form. If possible, have the name of your accident insurance institution and the file number ready.
