With the employment history calculator, you can calculate an estimate of whether the eight-year employment history required for adult education allowance is suitable for you.
The condition for receiving adult education allowance is eight years of work history. Until 2006, employment history is calculated according to the length of employment or business activities. Instead, starting in 2007, your employment history is calculated based on your annual earnings for each calendar year. Accumulated months of work history are obtained by dividing the earnings for the calendar year by the divisor of the annual earnings, which changes annually.
With this calculator, you avoid the hassle of calculating and easily check how much work history has been accumulated.
When you apply for adult education allowance for the first time, your work history will be calculated using the dividers below. The same divisors have also been used in the counter.
The calculation is an approximate estimate based on the information provided by the user and is not binding on the Employment Fund.
