Proof of job applications

If you are unemployed and receive compensation from unemployment insurance or participate in programmes with compensation from the Social Insurance Agency, we may sometimes ask you to send us documentation to prove that you have applied for the jobs recorded in your activity report.

Here is how this is done

If you are selected for a check, you will receive a letter from us, together with a response form. On the response form, you see what jobs you must show that you applied for. You can show that you applied for a reported job by sending in, for example:

  • your application
  • documentation that shows that you applied for the job, such as a response from the employer that shows that you applied for the job, or other documentation that shows that the employer received your application
  • a screen grab (screen dump) of the confirmation that you applied for the job.

Save documentation that shows that you applied for a reported job for at least three months.

What happens if you do not reply?

If you do not send in the completed reply form on time or if you cannot prove that you have applied for the jobs you have listed in your activity report, you may be issued a warning or lose your compensation for one or more days.
