The calculator enables you to calculate an estimate of how much employment history you have is based on the income you have earned from paid work from 2007 onwards. The calculation is an approximate estimate that is not binding on the Employment Fund. If the calculator shows that you have slightly more or slightly less than the required eight years, we recommend for you to send us an application for a preliminary decision, which will contain a precise calculation of your accrued employment history.
You can enter the earnings as shown on your pension record into the calculator.
