Working while receiving unemployment benefit:
- If you find work, you must report this to the Vinnumálastofnun before you start working. If you find occasional, short-term work, or regular part-time work, you must submit a statement of your earnings through “My pages” on the Vinnumálastofnun website.
- You may not pursue work as a self-employed person while drawing unemployment benefit. If you accept work as a contractor, you must take your name off the unemployment register while you are engaged on projects.
- All changes in your working status must be reported to the Vinnumálastofnun.
