Activation model for unemployment security

The activation model for unemployment security will be abolished as of 1 January 2020.

The benefit cuts involved in the activation model will no longer affect unemployment benefits paid after 1 January 2020. Any unemployment benefit cuts made on the basis of the activation model will be removed from the beginning of 2020. However, cuts made pursuant to the activation model will affect unemployment benefits accrued in 2019 and paid out in January.
