Payment of unemployment benefits

The Directorate of Labour’s payment office handles the payment of unemployment benefits for the whole of Iceland.  

Unemployment benefits are paid out on the first working day of each month.  

Please note that you must confirm your job search through My pages between the 20th and the 25th each month to ensure payment.  

  • Payments to job seekers who confirm their job search between the 20th and 25th days of each month will receive their benefit payment on the first working day of each month. 
  • Payments to job seekers who confirm their job search between the 26th and 3rd days of each month will be paid after the first week of the month. 
  • Payments to job seekers who confirm their job search after the 3rd day of the month will be paid on the first day of the next month.
