social welfare allowance

Last monday a consultant from social welfare (UWV) came to see me and talk to me. A friend of mine was there as well to keep me on the rails during my conversation with this welfare- and labor-consultant.
The consultant and I discussed the way I have been going in my life since I got this Auto-immunedisease. My hobbies, about my social life, etc.
He was of the opion that my life has had a great change and that my illness has been a great turnaround. And that I was unable to do the work that I used to do. Moreover he was of the opinion that the things that have happened to me with losing my kidneys and my left-eye made it really impossible to be able to do regular work in the field I used to work in.
Because of that he was sure that I am “unfit for work”, that is unfit as legally described. That also means that I will be receiving as from November 12th, 2014, a welfare allowance because I am unfit to work.
Between today and November 12th there will be a discussion held between my manager (and the health-case manager, both representing my employer), the aforementioned consultant and me, on how to finalize my case, that is my case at my employers and my case between my employer and social welfare. And by that time the financial consequences will also be put on paper. As from November 12th, social welfare will be paying my wages.

The story of Microsocopic Polyangiitis (MPA)

MPA has attacked my kidneys in 2012 and now 2 years later it has also attacked my left eye.

November 2014 it will be 2 years that I am on sick leave and in the Netherlands that means that I shall have to be examined by a physician working for social security. This is necessary for me to be eligible for social security and the percentage of social security I will be receiving and the percentage I am still fit to work. And afterwards someone else has to examine what sort of work I can still do given the fact that I am partly unfit to work and that I have to have dialysis 3 times a week (with everything that entails). A few weeks I have sent in the necessary paperwork for the request of said examination. I received notification that paerwork had ben received and yesterday someone from UWV (the office that does the examination for the social security eligibility) called requesting some extra info regarding my auto-immune disease. I explained to him the status of my disease and what my disease can hold in store, the attack of the other organs in my body (infections of the capillaries of an organ). Now he has to use that information and act upon it as part of the examination.

Anyway; I need a holiday.
