Confirmation that you are seeking employment

Every month, in the period 20-25 of the month, you must confirm that you are still seeking employment. This is done through “My pages” .. Mínar síður".

  • If you confirm that you are seeking employment in the period 20-25 of each month, your benefit payment will be made on the first working day of the following month.
  • If you confirm that you are seeking employment between the 25th day of the month and the 3rd day of the next, your benefit payment will be made 5 working days after the beginning of the month.
  • If you only confirm your are seeking employment in the period after the 3rd day of the following month, then your benefit payment will be made together with the payment after the beginning of the next month.

In making these confirmations, you are confirming that you are still without work and are actively seeking a job.  When you make your confirmation, you can also notify the Directorate of Labour of any changes, e.g. occasional work or part-time employment.
