- Your “return to work” note must have a date to return to work and specifically state “Able to perform job duties”
- It must list a Brief Diagnosis (no prognosis required)
- It must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org NYSIF has advised that they typically respond within 24 hours, excluding weekends and holidays. Please keep this in mind when submitting your RTW note.
It is recommended by NYSIF that your physician fill out NYSIF’s return to work form but your doctor is not required to as long as the RTW note is in accordance with the above bullet points.
