This is how we compensate the expenses of rehabilitants
You can apply for compensation for commuting expenses if the commute from your place of residence to the place of your work trial or studies is at least 10 kilometres. For a one-way commute, we will pay €0.21/km, which is half of the per-kilometre allowance. If the number of commuting days is at least 10 per month, we will pay compensation for the full month, i.e. for 21 days. Example: a one-way commute of 35 km: 21 days x 35 km x €0.21 = €154.35/month. If the number of commuting days is fewer than 10 per month, we will compensate only the actual commuting days. Example: a one-way commute of 35 km, 3 days/month: 3 days x 35 km x €0.21 = €22.05/month.
Write up a commuting invoice monthly after the fact. For old rehabilitation clients (e.g. for students' 2018 autumn semester) we will still pay compensation for periods not exceeding six months.
If you make one-time commutes or if you commute on an irregular basis, for instance, to a training location or to a rehabilitation partner's location, write up a commuting invoice monthly after your visit. There is no kilometre limit for visits to a rehabilitation partner.
Compensation of study costs
For rehabilitants who are studying, we compensate studying expenses of €300/semester once we have received your notification of studies.
Exceptional living arrangements
If you must acquire a second residence during your period of rehabilitation due to a long commute (distance of at least 70 km one way) and you incur housing costs from both your regular residence and your rehabilitation place of residence, we will compensate the extra housing costs during your active rehabilitation period in the amount of €19/day. We will compensate minor expenses based on actual costs.
