If you are unable to work due to illness or disability, your employer continues to pay all or part of your salary for two years. After that period, the benefits agency UWV will assess your medical condition. If your incapacity for work is then still 35% or more, you will be entitled to a benefit under the Work and Income (Capacity for Work) Act (WIA). The benefit will usually be lower than your regular income.
You can take out Metalektro WIA insurance via your employer to supplement your benefit from the UWV. Even if you don’t receive a benefit from the UWV, you may still be entitled to compensation under the Metalektro WIA insurance policies. That will give you a feeling of security!
