This is important because without a statement from the employment authority, we cannot pay earnings-related daily allowance even if there are no other obstacles to payment.
You cannot apply for a job retroactively, so register as a jobseeker on your first day of unemployment at the latest.
Remember to apply for daily allowance in time
We can only pay you an earnings-related allowance for a period of three months before your application is submitted. This means that if you apply late, we may not be able to pay you income-related daily allowance for the period for which you have applied.
For example, if you send in an application in May claiming earnings-related daily allowance for the month of January preceding your claim, we will not be able to pay you earnings-related daily allowance for January because we will miss the three-month deadline.
So remember to apply for an earnings-related allowance at the latest within three months of the date you want the payment to start.
Restrictions on the payment of the daily allowance
There are some restrictions on the payment of the daily allowance. When you apply to us for an income-related daily allowance, we will check all of them. If there is a restriction that prevents payment, we will give you a negative decision.
