The increased component based on an employment history has ceased
Due to an amendment in the Unemployment Security Act, the increased component will no longer be paid based on an employment history of 20 years. A person whose employment ended before 1.1.2017 could, however, receive the increased component until 30.6.2017.
Check your eligibility for mobility allowance
The unemployment funds are paying out a new benefit called mobility allowance. The purpose of the new benefit is to support receiving work located at a longer commuting distance. Please inspect your entitlement to mobility allowance in case you receive a job with a travelling time of over 3 hours (full-time employment) or 2 hours (part-time employment) per day.
