Unemployment security advice TE Office

The TE Office provides job-seekers with advice and information on applying for unemployment benefit and general requirements for receiving it.

If you become unemployed, you will need information on unemployment benefits. The TE Office’s webpages contain information on

  • how to apply for unemployment benefit
  • how important it is to remain registered as a job-seeker
  • what obligations the job-seeker has.

You can also call the TE Office and ask questions related to applying for and receiving unemployment benefits, such as:

  • In what situations is unemployment benefit paid and in what situations is it not?
  • When is an entrepreneur entitled to unemployment benefit?
  • How does being a student affect entitlement to unemployment benefit?
  • How does part-time or temporary work affect the payment of unemployment benefit?
  • How do I respond to the TE Office’s request for clarification?
  • How do I appeal against a labour policy statement of the TE Office?

The Unemployment Security Advice service is available to everyone.

For more information, please see the If You Become Unemployed section of the TE Services website.
