If necessary, we will ask for additional information; for example, we might ask your employer for a description of your work tasks and work arrangement possibilities. The average processing time for rehabilitation applications is approximately three weeks. Together with the rehabilitation decision, you will receive information concerning your personal rehabilitation specialist. You can discuss how your rehabilitation will be carried out with the specialist.
