You work in the Netherlands
If you do not live in the Netherlands but you work in the Netherlands, you are probably insured under the Wlz scheme (Long-term care scheme).
To decide whether you are insured under the Wlz scheme, we look at the type of work you do, and the country or countries you work in.
Your work location
If you work for a Dutch company, or you receive profits from a Dutch company, but all your work activities are performed outside the Netherlands, you are normally not insured under the Wlz scheme. To be insured, you have to actually work in the Netherlands.
Your work situation
We also look at your work situation, for example whether you work for an employer or you are self-employed. Or whether your employer has posted you to work in a different country.
If you work as an au pair in the Netherlands and you receive an allowance as well as board and lodging, you will be insured under the Wlz scheme.
If you do a paid internship in the Netherlands, you may be insured under the Wlz scheme.
The country you work in
If you work in a country of the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland, or you work in 2 or more countries, we will take this into account when we decide whether you are insured under the Wlz scheme.
