How much will I get paid if I'm sick

Normally, you will continue to receive all or part of your wages or salary while you are sick. If not, you can apply for a benefit. Read what will happen depending on your situation.

If you get sick, your employer will continue to pay your salary. 

If you are a manual labourer, you will get another 14 days wages. Service workers will get another 30 days. After that period, you will receive a basic incapacity benefit (primaire arbeidsongeschiktheidsuitkering) from your health insurance fund (mutualiteit). This benefit will be 60% of your wages or salary.

If you work in the Belgian healthcare sector and your job exposes you to greater risk of infection (for example, ambulance paramedic or intensive care nurse), you can get a compensation payment for work-related illness (schadeloosstelling wegens beroepsziekte). You are then considered to be temporarily fully incapacitated for work and the benefit will be 90% of your salary. You can apply for the benefit to the Federal Agency for Occupational Risks (Fedris). Your questions can be sent by email to covid19@fedris.be 

If you get sick, your employer will continue to pay your salary for the first 6 weeks. After that, you can get sick pay from the health insurance fund (Krankenkasse) where you are registered under the German health insurance system.

If you get sick, your employer will continue to pay your full salary as usual. If you are a temporary worker or flex worker (zero hour contract) and you get sick, your employer can terminate your contract. In that case, you can get a sickness benefit from the UWV. This will be 70% of your wages.
