Disability allowance (unemployment insurance)
What is the disability allowance from unemployment insurance?
While you are unemployed, assuming you have completed your application to find employment through the public employment office (Hello Work), if you are not able to work for more than 15 further days because of an illness or injury, you will be paid a disability allowance equal to the amount of your unemployment benefit.
To be eligible, you must meet all of the following conditions.
  • You are eligible to receive unemployment benefits (basic allowance). <Note 1>
  • You have completed your application to find employment through the public employment office (Hello Work).
  • You are not able to work because of an illness or injury.
<Note 1> Please refer to Hello Work Internet Service for details regarding unemployment benefits.
How do I apply for disability allowance?
Submit your disability allowance application form together with proof of employment benefit eligibility at your local public employment office (Hello Work).
How long can I receive the disability allowance?
The duration for payment of basic unemployment benefits differs according to how long you were insured, your classification, and age. This could be anywhere between 90 and 360 days. If an illness or injury incurs while you are receiving employment benefits and prevents you from being able to work for a further 30 days or more, you will need to apply for an extension to avoid cancellation of payment.
