▼ Counseling services for persons applying for determination of work ability or degree of severity of disability
The ECDP provides additional counseling services for persons applying for determination of work ability or degree of severity of disability and their legal representatives. The purpose of the counseling service is to create an additional and independent support system for resolving issues related to the assessment of work ability and degree of severity of disability.
Free counseling is available for people of working age (and their legal representatives):
• who intend to request an assessment of work ability and/or an assessment of the degree of severity of disability;
• whose work ability and/or degree of severity of disability has been assessed, but who are dissatisfied with the results of the assessment and need assistance in clarifying the content of the decisions;
• who need assistance and advice in exercising their right to appeal against decisions on the assessment of work ability and/or degree of severity of disability.
Counseling is provided in face-to-face meetings, via e-mail and by phone
Face-to-face meetings for counseling that are registered in advance take place in the ECDP at Toompuiestee 10, Tallinn. The ECDP is open on business days from 9 AM to 5 PM.
A sign language interpretation service is provided, if necessary; please submit this request upon registration to the counseling. The building of the ECDP is accessible. The person seeking counseling can use a client computer with Internet connection and an ID card reader on site (e.g. to fill in electronic applications with the help of a counselor).
