If you fall ill while you are unemployed or laid-off, your illness may affect your unemployment allowance.

Report your illness to the fund in your allowance application. If your sick leave continues longer than the period you are sending the application, report in the details of the application when your sick leave ends.

Example: You are sending an application for the month of March, but your sick leave ends on April 15th. Report the ending date of your sick leave in the applications details.
