Video on the coordination of unemployment benefits

Claiming unemployment benefit can seem complicated when you live on one side of the border and have worked on the other side.

This animation explains what will happen to your right to unemployment benefits if you live and work in more than one country of the European Union or in Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.

In particular, can years worked in other countries be taken into account to meet national conditions of entitlement? And can you look for a job in another country and still carry on receiving your unemployment benefits?

EU rules on social security coordination enable you to move around Europe and not lose out on your social security rights.
