As a rule, you cannot have the entitlement to earnings-related daily allowance during services promoting employment, if you were not entitled to the daily allowance as an unemployed person. This means that the hindrances and limitations to earnings-related daily allowance, for example accepting full time work for over two weeks or receiving a hindering social benefit, prevent the payment of daily allowance also during services that promote employment.
When you take part in the service you are entitled to daily allowance exceptionally in the following cases:
- During a waiting period.
- During a waiting period without benefits set by the TE offices.
- During a work obligation set by the TE offices.
Also the young under the age of 25 are entitled to daily allowance during the employment promoting services despite having not applied to training without a valid reason or who have due to their own conduct caused not being accepted in training or who have declined training.
Please notice that the daily allowance can be paid during employment promoting services despite an aforementioned hindrance only in the case that the hindrance has existed already before the beginning of the service. However, an aforementioned hindrance that begins during the services prevents earnings-related daily allowance in all other services except in employment training and voluntary studies.
