In case you feel that your work ability has decreased you should go to the Estonian Unemployment Insurance Fund for further assessment. The assessment has three possible outcomes: full ability, partial ability or no ability.
You need to have visited your general practitioner, a medical specialist or an occupational health doctor in the six months prior to submitting an application for the assessment of your work ability.
After that, you can fill in an application for work ability assessment and send it to the Estonian Unemployment Insurance Fund.
