I'm slightly unclear as to the difference between uføretrygdet - as in being in receipt of disability benefit and "atføring", which I think relates to being disabled or unable to work, but how do they differ?
TIA

English translation:rehabilitation
Explanation:
That should be attføring - 'att' as in 'tilbake' or returning. Attføring is typically used when a person is disabled from a profession, but able to perform in a different capacity/another profession. It covers re-training and sponsored pay until the client is established in a new job situation - or until it times out, when either disability or unemployment is next.

agree  Richard Lawson: However, the national insurance authority makes a distinction between "rehabilitering" and "yrkesmessig attføring" (occupational rehabilitation). See for example sosialdepartementets budsjettforslag.
