Prindi

Lisatud 21.01.2020 | Uuendatud 21.01.2021

In order to apply for an unemployment insurance benefit, you have to submit an application to Töötukassa using electronic service, at the local department or by phone.

Applying by phone is usually possible if you cannot apply using electronic service or at the local department.

If you worked in Estonia, the employment or service relationship must be registered in the employment register by your employer.

Töötukassa shall make a decision on the grant of or refusal to grant an unemployment insurance benefit within 14 calendar days after the date of submission of an application.

The decision shall be delivered to you by email or at the local department of Töötukassa.

Upon grant of an unemployment insurance benefit, the unemployment insurance benefit shall be calculated since the 8th day after submission of an application.

If your last employment or service relationship was cancelled due to a lay-off and had lasted from 5 to 10 years, you shall have the right to an unemployment insurance benefit 30 calendar days after the date of termination of the employment or service relationship.

If your last employment or service relationship was cancelled due to a lay-off and had lasted more than 10 years, you shall have the right to an unemployment insurance benefit 60 calendar days after the date of termination of the employment or service relationship.
