Earnings-related unemployment security in the summer
Summer may have some impact on the application process for earnings-related unemployment security. In practice, nothing changes and you can apply for the daily allowance normally during the summer. Next, we’ll go over a few practical points that we receive a lot of questions about over the summer.

Check your Incomes Register data
For a few years, we have been using data from the Incomes Register to process allowance applications. When you submit your earnings-related daily allowance application, please check that your income information is correct in the Incomes Register.
Have you remembered to apply for mobility allowance?
When you take a job that is further away, you can apply for mobility allowance from us. It is therefore not a fitness allowance, but an incentive to increase labour mobility. According to a recent study, the allowance is little used and poorly known.
When will I get my money?
We had a payment date calculator before the pandemic. The calculator allows you to estimate when the money will appear in your bank account.

Now we are happy to tell you that we have relaunched the payment date calculator.
