For how long and what amount of UI benefit shall I be paid?

/back.pngback

UI benefit is paid for 9 months independently of a work record.

A UI benefit is a sum of two parts: a fixed part and a variable part:

  • The fixed part consists of 30 percent of the minimum payment. Currently – 120 Eur (400 Eur x 30 proc).
  • The variable part for the first 3 months amounts of 50 percent of the recipient‘s average wage; 4-6 months – 40 percent; 7-9 months – 30 percent (Only your earnings in Lithuania will be taken into account. This means that even though the unemployment insurance record is transferred from other countries, your foreign earned income shall not affect the amount of an unemployment benefit)..

Calculation of an unemployment social insurance benefit:

  • 1-3 months. 120 EUR + 50 percent of the average wage of an employee;
  • 4-6 months. 120 EUR + 40 percent of the average wage of an employee;
  • 7-9 months. 120 EUR + 30 percent of the average wage of an employee.

Maximum UI payment cannot exceed 75 percent of country‘s average wage.
