When you receive earnings-related daily allowance, we follow your activity in periods of 65 payment days. In the activation model the 65-day periods come after each other. In some situations the follow-up period will restart from the beginning.
When the period of 65 payment days is up, we will check whether you have been active or not. At that point we will make the necessary decisions on earnings-related daily allowance. After that a new follow-up period of 65 payment days will start.
65 payment days
The period of 65 payment days includes those days for which you receive earnings-related daily allowance. The calculation is not affected by whether the daily allowance is paid in full, adjusted according to employment income or deducted due to a social benefit. One day for which you are paid daily allowance accrues the follow-up period by one day.
The first follow-up period will start from the first day paid for after the condition regarding employment is fulfilled. The following periods will always start from the next day paid for after the end of the previous period of 65 days.
An exception is the turn of the year when the law enters into force. Then the first follow-up period will start on 1 January 2018.
Resetting of the follow-up period
The follow-up period of 65 payment days will restart from the beginning:
- When you have been employed in full-time work without interruptions for more than two weeks.
- When you have been employed full-time as an entrepreneur or in a similar way in own work without interruptions for more than two weeks.
- If your earnings-related daily allowance is rejected, because your working hours exceed 80% of the working hours of full-time employment or your working hours are not followed in part-time work.
- If you have been ordered a fixed period without benefit or obligation regarding employment.
