The earnings-related component is 45 per cent of the difference between your daily wage and the basic component. If your monthly salary is more than 3534,95 euros, the earnings-related component is 20 % of the exceeding amount. This also differs from year 2022 (limit 3277.50 euros in 2022).

The amount of earnings-related unemployment allowance is also affected by the TyEL deduction, which in 2023 will be 4.40% (4.29% in 2022).
