Temporary unemployment due to the coronavirus or the war in Ukraine

The Overseas Social Security does not comprise an unemployment branch.

Do you normally work outside of the European Economic Area (EEA), but are you now in Belgium, unable to return to your foreign posting? Then you may make use of the system of temporary unemployment through force majeure as a result of the corona crisis or the war in Ukraine. To make that possible, your employer must temporarily suspend your participation in the Overseas Social Security and reattach you to the Belgian firm.

For more information, please consult the FAQ in the COVID-19 Information section on the homepage of the National Employment Office website (in French)(New window).
