Studying is always worth your while. By studying, you can enhance your skills and improve your chances of getting a job and advancing in your career.

Although unemployment benefits are not intended for supporting studies, in certain situations you can study and simultaneously receive earnings-related daily allowance to support your livelihood. ​​​​​​

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​We cannot pay earnings-related daily allowance solely on the basis of studies. All the preconditions for the payment of earnings-related daily allowance must be met and the maximum payment period may not have expired. In addition, in order to successfully combine studies and earnings-related daily allowance, the employment authority must always be consulted. Therefore, be sure to contact the TE Services well in advance before you start your studies.

​​​​​​​Even though we will issue you with a decision on earnings-related daily allowance, it is up to the employment authority to assess the impact of your studies on your entitlement to benefits. The employment authority will issue us with a statement on whether you are entitled to the benefit or not.
