The government has in one of its proposals suggested, that from the first of January, 2017 onwards, unemployment funds shall pay a new benefit, mobility allowance, to those members who start a job with a long travelling time to and from work. As the proposal has already passed its committee handling, it is time to give you all more information about this new allowance.
The Parliament has accepted the Government proposal 113/2016 vp for the amended legislation of Unemployment Security Act without making any changes into the Government's original proposal. As a result, there will be following amendments to the law as of 1.1.2017. Please see below our understanding of the kind of effect these changes will have on claiming earnings-related unemployment allowance.
How will the earnings-related unemployment allowance change in the turn of the year? The following summary describes how the changes as we understand them will affect the right to earnings-related allowance, if they are ratified.
We often get the question if the time of submission affects the processing time of the application. The answer is yes: the submission and reception time of the application does affect the estimated processing time, both in respect of the time of the month and time of the year.
