Benefits (administrative law)

Administrative law implies a wide area. Our office also focuses on social insurance and social services. You can think of issues about social assistance benefits at the municipality, WW-, ZW- or WIA-benefits at the UWV and an AOW pension at the SVB.

• Does the UVW refuse to recognize your entitlement to an unemployment benefit?
• Does the UWV require you to work while you are incapacitated for work?
• Does the UWV not take your physical or psychological complaints seriously?
• Does the municipality refuse to provide you with social assistance benefits?
• Has the municipality revised and withdrawn your social assistance benefit?
• Does the municipality suspect you of living together and is that why the benefit will be changed?
• Does the municipality intend to impose a fine on you for violation of the obligation to provide information?
• Is your AOW pension partially reclaimed by the SVB?

We can assist you decisively in these and many more cases. Call or email us directly and submit your case to us for FREE. Together with you we look at the possibilities. Please pay attention to the term if you have received a decision. You usually have to act against a decision in just a few weeks! If the period has expired, in most cases the decision is legally established and has become inviolable.

Would you like to read more about the rights and obligations associated with various benefits? Then read further on our website under “Benefits (administrative law) – Your rights and obligations as a beneficiary“.

CAN WE ALWAYS HELP YOU?

Frequently asked questions: Distributions

Every first conversation is always FREE and without obligation. We make an initial assessment and, if necessary, take over the administrative burden from you.

We mainly work on the basis of funded legal aid: if your income and assets are below a certain limit, the government pays a lot cases your lawyer fees. You only have to pay a small personal contribution, which depends on your income. If you have a benefit, you are almost always eligible for funded legal aid. More information and current income and wealth standards can be found at www.rvr.org .

The length of a procedure depends very much on the type of case and at what stage the case is. The government is bound by statutory decision periods.
Application phase A decision must be made within a 'reasonable period': in any case within eight weeks after the application, unless the period is suspended by the government because, for example, you still have to provide information. It may also be the case that specific deadlines apply to certain applications: applications to the Immigration and Naturalization Service (usually) have periods of 90 days and even six months.
Objection phase This applies within six weeks must be decided (in an advisory committee 12 weeks), which term can also be extended by another six weeks. Again, different times may apply on a case-by-case basis. For example, the Immigration and Naturalization Service sometimes uses different terms, such as 19 weeks for objections to regular applications.
Appeals and Appeals Phase During these phases, the duration can increase enormously, depending on when there is an opportunity to schedule a hearing. If it concerns a large criminal case, the duration can amount to a year or even two. If it concerns a case on appeal against a benefit, this can also amount to more than a year's waiting period.
