Applying for benefits for participation in working life for persons insured under statutory accident insurance

Description

If you are no longer able to carry out your previous activity as before due to health difficulties 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 employers' liability insurance association or accident insurance fund are, for example:

  • Assistance for the resumption or continuation of previous activities
  • Support in the transfer within the previous company to another activity
  • Assistance in taking up employment in another company
  • Retraining
  • vocational 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 job. If a return to the existing job is not possible, work is done to at least maintain the employment relationship with the previous employer. If this is not possible either, the aim is to achieve rapid and sustainable integration into the general labour market.

Participation benefits are also provided for children and adolescents in the event of an insured event. The aim is, among other things, to provide those affected with a general school education and appropriate employment or gainful employment.
You do not have to apply. Your employers' liability insurance association or accident insurance fund examines possible claims ex officio.

You do not have to apply. Your employers' liability insurance association or accident insurance fund examines possible claims on its own initiative ("ex officio") and contacts you.
