We know it can be a difficult time for people who are transitioning out of the workers compensation system. To help, we’re offering a transition support service to make things easier by connecting you with health, employment, and community services to get you the support you need.
Working one-on-one with a qualified rehabilitation specialist, you’ll receive a tailored plan that is based on your individual circumstances, needs and goals. You will be supported each step of the way.
Taking up the tailored service won't have any impact on your claim.
If you are interested in taking up this service, or would like more information, please email TransitionSpecialist@eml.com.au
