If you are written off sick by your doctor, you will receive a sick note, also known as a statement of fitness for work (Arbeitsunfähigkeitsbescheinigung). Normally this note is transferred to us by your doctor automatically. If this is not the case, you have to send the note "zur Vorlage bei der Krankenkasse" to us within one week. If you fail to do so, you may not receive sick pay if you are ill for a longer period of time.

More details

The easiest and quickest way to send your statement of fitness is via the TK-App. You can download it free of charge using the links above.

Alternatively, you can send the form to the following address (a street address is not required):

Techniker Krankenkasse
20908 Hamburg

Important: If your doctor transferred your statement of fitness for work electronically then you do not need to send us any further confirmation.
