The Unemployment Insurance Fund offers a variety of counselling services. By selecting a specific service from the menu on the left, you can learn more about it.
Such emotions are perfectly normal after losing a job or receiving a lay-off notice. It is important not to ignore them but rather to deal with them. If your skills and the help of your friends and family are not enough to resolve the situation, we recommend that you make an appointment with a psychologist.
You can do this if you are registered as unemployed or are a jobseeker with a lay-off notice. If you would like to visit a psychologist, tell your consultant, who will then refer you to one.
Your income decreases significantly after losing a job and unemployment insurance benefits and unemployment allowances are only paid temporarily. In order not to find yourself in debt or for your existing debts to escalate, you should rethink as quickly as possible how to cope with your loan commitments.
The Unemployment Insurance Fund also helps you with other problems which acquire counselling, such as dealing with addiction disorders. If you feel that you need help in overcoming an alcohol, drug or gambling addiction, talk about this with your consultant, who will assist you in finding opportunities and places for dealing with addiction problems.
If you are registered as unemployed and participating in a job club or in psychological, debt or addiction counselling, we pay you commuting and accommodation benefits as needed.
