How to request unemployment online: these are the steps and the amount you will receive

When a person loses his job, his biggest concern at that moment is to guarantee the collection of the contributory unemployment benefit, unemployment, if he is entitled to it. The fastest way to do it, if you meet the necessary conditions, is to do it online.

The Public State Employment Service (SEPE) allows this procedure to be carried out through the Electronic Headquarters, entering through the ‘Persons’ category and accessing the ‘Recognition of the contributory benefit’ service, . In order to carry out the procedure, yes, the citizen must have one of these access methods: digital certificate (), electronic DNI or Cl@ve ().

The operation of this service is simple: once the citizen accesses the method available to him, he has to respond to “a simple form, guided step by step through screens”, in which the applicant must enter all the work and personal information that is needed for the recognition of the benefit.

First, and provided that it has not been sent by the company, the information that appears on the company certificate must be entered. Here are the company data (Social Security Regime, NIF or CIF, company name, CNAE, registered office…), the worker’s data (name and surnames, DNI or NIF, contribution group, type of contract …) and the cause and date of the suspension or termination of employment.

Later, the citizen will be able to inform or modify part of the information that the SEPE has in its possession. Here you must indicate the legal situation of unemployment, the bank details of the applicant (for receiving the benefit), the data for sending notifications (address, email, mobile or landline phone number), the data on family responsibilities and a section of observations that the citizen can fill in if he deems it appropriate.
