Prindi

Lisatud 21.01.2020 | Uuendatud 21.01.2021

The amount of your unemployment insurance benefit for one calendar day shall be calculated on the basis of your average salary for one calendar day.

The average salary for one calendar day shall be calculated on the basis of 9 payments from which unemployment insurance premiums have been withheld before the last 3 months of employment (the last 3 payments and payments for temporary employment during the period of registration as unemployed are not taken into account).

Starting from 1 August 2020, you will receive 60% of your average pay for one calendar day in benefits for the first 100 days; after that, you will receive 40%.

If your unemployment benefit payment period lasts from 1 August 2020 to 27 January 2021 (180 calendar days), you will:

  • receive 60% of your average pay for one calendar day in benefits from 1 August 2020 to 8 November 2020 (100 calendar days)
  • 40% from 9 November 2020 to 27 January 2021 (80 calendar days)

The maximum amount of benefits paid in 2021 will be 60% or 40% of three times the average pay for one calendar day in Estonia; a maximum of 67.30 euros per day or 2086.30 euros for 31 days can be received for the first 100 days and a maximum of 44.87 euros per day or 1390.97 euros for 31 days (gross amounts) can be received starting from day 101.

The minimum amount of unemployment insurance benefit for one calendar day is 50% of the minimum monthly salary for the previous calendar year divided by 30. The minimum amount of unemployment insurance benefit in 2021 is 9,73 EUR for all of the calendar days.
