What are the steps to apply for unemployment?

In order to collect unemployment benefit at the contribution level, it is important to take into account several factors that can help eliminate errors, inconvenience and unnecessary travel.

The following are some of the key points:

Right to Collect

The first thing you need to consider is that it takes at least 360 days of paid work to be entitled to 4 months of benefit.

The periods can be interrupted, but they must add up to at least that number of days.

The deadline

You have 15 working days to apply for unemployment from the time your contractual relationship ends, i.e. Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays do not count.

If the application is submitted after the deadline, you will not lose your right to the benefit, but the Employment Service will not pay you for all the days you would have had if you had applied in time and form.

The necessary documentation

Your DNI /NIE, bank account certificate, family book, company certificate.

Recently, the company or agency usually sends the certificate electronically to the employment service itself through the certific@dos application

Another important aspect is that if part-time jobs have been performed in previous years and no benefit has been received for them, these contracts or company certificates must also be kept, so that the administration can account for the quoted bias.

Other relevant information

As general advice, it is very important to take advantage of the time of unemployment for training, which in most cases will be free of charge.

In many sectors, for example, it is necessary to take a course in occupational risk prevention or food handling, so being able to obtain such accreditation is an added value, which increases the suitability of the candidate for the job.

Once the unemployment is being paid, certain events may arise that may affect the service, such as

  • Taking the decision to look for a job in the European Union.

In this case, the benefit may be continued for a maximum of 6 months while the worker enters the labour market in that new country.

  • A job offer arises for a certain time.

Upon acceptance of the contract, collection of the benefit will be interrupted for the duration of the contract, and once the employment relationship ends, collection of the benefit may be resumed or a new benefit may be collected if the contract period has been extended.

  • Make the work and the collection of the benefit compatible.

In this case the amount is reduced in proportion to the hours you work. For example, if you are paid 1,000 euros per month and you start working 30% of the day, you will be paid about 700 euros (1,000-300=700 euros)

  • If a business opportunity arises, you can invest the unemployment benefit for a one-time business, or combine unemployment and self-employment.
