Is the 30% ruling still applicable while in redeployment?

I understand that the 30% ruling cannot be applied on redundancy payments. But I have a specific question regarding income while being in the redeployment centre. In my organisation I could choose to be posted in the redeployment centre for a maximum of 12 months or until I find a suitable job when I become redundant. Normally one does not work while being posted in the redeployment centre.
My question is will the income earned while in the redeployment centre be treated as redundancy payments as per the laws applicable? The important point is that this is not a compensation of loss of future income.

thanks for your advice.
The 30% ruling is indeed not applicable on redundancy payments.
Relevant in your situation in my opinion is whether you are still on the payroll administration of your employer and thus continue to receive your salary every month. If so the 30% ruling can remain applicable. If you however receive unemployment benefit from the UWV the 30% ruling will no longer be applicable.
