Unemployment insurance period is a period for which an insured person receives salary for working on the basis of a contract of employment or for engagement in public service, if an unemployment insurance premium is required to be withheld from such payments.

Unemployment insurance period is also a period for which an insured person receives salary as a Public Conciliator, a member of a rural municipality or city government, a rural municipality or city district elder, or receives a spouse allowance, if an unemployment insurance premium is required to be withheld from such payments.

As insurance period shall not be calculated the period during which you:

  • used pregnancy leave and maternity leave, adoptive parents leave, parental leave;
  • used holiday without pay granted by agreement of the parties;
  • were temporarily incapacitated for work (sick leave);
  • were in compulsory military service or alternative service.

If you used a pregnancy leave and maternity leave, adoptive parents leave or parental leave during the 36 months before registration as unemployed, the 36 months period shall be extended by the time spent on leave.

If you worked on the basis of a contract under the law of obligations, unemployment insurance period will be a period during which you have received salary, if an unemployment insurance premium has been withheld from such payments.

The calculation of an insurance period shall be terminated and the insurance period shall be set to zero when an unemployment insurance benefit is granted. The calculation of the insurance period shall begin again when you start working.
