I have received a letter from Employment Agency (Agentur für Arbeit). In short it requires me to apply for the rehabilitation services and if I do not cooperate(mitwirken), it will reject my application for the benefits. Of course, it sounds obvious that I'd better take the offer.
But there is a point I do concern:
In the letter it's written, " Ich nehme zur Kenntnis, dass mein Anspruch auf Arbeitslosengeld ruht, wenn ich meiner .''....
Now the question is,
1) Does it mean that I cannot refuse any advice given by the experts from the rehabilitation centre even if he/she requires me to have a surgery?
2) Can I choose the types of treatments I prefer (e.g. physiotherapy) in the process of rehabilitation?
P.S. In these months I endure and do different types of exercises every day for my herniated disc and my situation is really improved. I really don't want to have surgery because I am almost recovered and I am planning how to get back to work. It just needs time.
Therefore, your reply can really give me a big help.
Thank you very much!
