For the registered unemployed


Lisatud 16.02.2017

Rights and obligations of registered unemployed person

If you are registered as unemployed, you have the right to:

  • receive up-to-date information about the situation on the labour market and assistance in finding employment;
  • apply for the unemployment insurance benefit or unemployment allowance;
  • participate in employment support services depending on your needs.

While you remain registered as unemployed, you are obliged to:

Health insurance

People who are registered as unemployed are covered by health insurance starting from the 31st day of the period of registration. Health insurance remains valid throughout the registration period and for one month after that status is terminated. If the unemployment insurance benefit is terminated along with the status as unemployed, health insurance remains valid for two months after the unemployment insurance benefit period.

Changing your office or consultant

A person who has registered as unemployed has the right to change their Unemployment Insurance Fund office at any time. To do this you need to submit a free-form application with the name of the chosen office at which you would like to continue receiving the labour market services and benefits.
