Abstract [en]

At the turn of the year 2009/2010 there was a change in the regulations on sickness impact. This led to 328 persons in County of Kronoberg had an expired period of sickness benefit from the Social Insurance Office (Försäkringskassan) when they reached the maximum time for sickness or temporary disability compensation. These individuals were offered introductory programs with the employment services. The purpose of this study is to investigate how the population with expired period of sickness benefit from the Regional Social Insurance Office in the County of Kronoberg (Försäkringskassan Kronoberg) is described in the initial stage, and to explore how individuals who achieved expired period of sickness benefit from the Social Insurance Office (Försäkringskassan) talks about the meaning to get an expired period of sickness benefit regarding economic and social issues. The study was inspired by Grounded theory. The method has consisted of both quantitative and qualitative interviews. In total, six persons participated in the surveys. Narrative method was used in the interview with a person with experience of an expired period of sickness benefit from the Social Insurance Office (Försäkringskassan). The interviews indicate that the authorities have different focus on the concept of rehabilitation. This means that what is to be regarded as rehabilitation and the efforts which may benefit the individual depends on which authority has the power of definition. This study is made before preparing administrators for either statistics or working methods were established by the relevant authorities. Longer experience in the field is still missing about what the change means for both individuals who have experience of the expired period of sickness benefit and professionals. This points out; further research in this area is needed.
