Rehabilitation allowance

Instead of daily allowance and workers' compensation pension, the injured person is paid rehabilitation allowance in compensation for the loss of earnings during vocational rehabilitation. 

As a rule, rehabilitation allowance paid during vocational rehabilitation corresponds to the amount of full daily allowance or workers' compensation pension. However, if rehabilitation does not prevent the injured person from engaging in gainful employment, the rehabilitation allowance is determined on the basis of the loss of earnings.  

During holidays which are part of the syllabus of the training compensable as vocational rehabilitation, rehabilitation allowance is paid in the same amount as during the actual training. Therefore, earnings from summer jobs and similar work will not affect the amount of rehabilitation allowance.
