Maximum period of entitlement

The unemployment grant is paid for a maximum of 138 days out of the 12 consecutive months in which you are registered as unemployed.

If you are undergoing vocational training, the unemployment grant is paid to you throughout your training, but not after you reach the age of 18.

For the first five days of unemployment in every four consecutive months, beginning on the 1st of the month in which the period of unemployment began, no unemployment grant is paid (even if you are undergoing vocational training).
