Who is entitled to mobility allowance?

You may receive mobility allowance, if you are entitled to earnings-related daily allowance and take on a full-time job lasting at least 2 months and it will take you, on average, more than 3 hours each day to get to work and back,  or you move to a house a similar distance away in order to start a job or job-related training.

We can also pay you mobility allowance if you are entitled to earnings-related daily allowance and accept a part-time job lasting at least 2 months and the total commuting time is, on average, more than 2 hours each day.

Mobility allowance is intended for starting a job after unemployment – that is why it cannot be granted to those who change from one job to another.


Temporary change to the law

Thanks to the temporary change to the law, the commuting time has now been reduced to two hours. The temporary change to the law is valid from 12 June 2020 to 31 October 2020.
