Read more about the pay subsidy option

The pay subsidy is a financial subsidy that compensates the employer for part of the salary costs. The employer can receive a pay subsidy when certain conditions are met.

You may be entitled to the pay subsidy when you have registered as an unemployed jobseeker and the pay-subsidised work promotes your employment.

A pay subsidy may be granted for

  • a fixed-term employment relationship or an employment relationship that is valid until further notice
  • a full-time or part-time employment relationship (e.g. if you have partial work ability)
  • apprenticeship training.

The pay subsidy will be reformed starting on 1 July 2023. The new information on the pay subsidy will be updated on our website by 1 July 2023.
