1. How to apply for injury or sickness benefits? What documents are needed for the application?

In case an insured person is not receiving salary payment (or in paid leave status) on account of injury or sickness for which he/she is hospitalized and under medical treatment, he/she shall be paid injury or sickness benefits beginning from the fourth day on which he/she is incapacitated for work. Injury or sickness benefits are counted by days, if the period of injury or sickness exceeds fifteen days, the benefit is set at every fifteen days and claimed at the end of the period. If a longer term medical treatment is needed, the benefit could be claimed in several payments or claimed in a single payment after recovery from the injury or sickness and work is resumed (or discharged from hospital for ordinary sickness). However, the application for benefits must be submitted within the five-year prescribed period which is amended and enforced on December 21th, 2012 for filing claims.
