If you are of retirement age, you can also use other Unemployment Insurance Fund services, provided that you are not working and register as a jobseeker.
Depending on their requirements, a jobseeker of retirement age can receive the following services:
- labour market training;
- support for obtaining qualifications;
- work placement;
- business start-up subsidy;
- business support (compensation of training expenses related to a company's activities, individual counselling and mentoring costs and participation in a mentor club);
- adjustment of workspaces and working equipment;
- lending (free of charge) of the assistive equipment needed to carry out work.
Registered jobseekers who are eligible for the old-age pension and who have been referred to labour market training, support for obtaining qualifications or work placement during their registration as a jobseeker will continue to receive these services even after their status as a jobseeker has been terminated or they have commenced work.
The labour market service is co-financed by the European Social Fund of the European Union on the basis of regulation No. 222 of the Minister of Health and Labour of 4 December 2014 ‘Provision of labour market services to facilitate employment opportunities’.
