I was put on temporary unemployment by my employer, what should I do?
Introduce a file.
You only have to do this the first time. You are advised to do this as soon as possible since the RVA needs your info. You can complete the entire application process online through this site.
How to introduce a file to receive unemployment benefits?
We will take care of the rest.
Which amount can I receive in benefits?
You will receive 70% of your salary, regardless of the composition of your family. The gross-maximum salary on which this amount is calculated is 2.754,76 EUR. On top of that an extra 5.63€/day of unemployment due to force majeur will be added. A withholding tax of 15% applies.
What is new?
Special measures are in place to strongly reduce the application procedure.
1. The use of the document C3.2A is temporarily suspended. So, you don't have to hand this over to ABVV.
2. Whether you have other sources of income or activities (e.g. partially self employed) is no longer considered.
3. For non-nationals there are no specific documents required. Same process applies. These exceptions on the general regulations will be in place up till August 30, 2020.
