Let us know if something changes
Your level on compensation depends on several factors. In order to receive the right amount of compensation you need to report all changes to us within two weeks. You report the changes in the e-service for compensation.
Examples of changes to report:
- You apply for a course.
- You start freelancing or take on jobs.
- You become part of a board.
- You take on a commission of trust.
- You claim your pension.
If yo are unsure about whether to report a change to us, contact us. It’s always better to report too many changes than the opposite. If you miss to report a change you may become liable for repayment, risk to lose your compensation or lose your membership in the unemployment insurance fund.
