There are several factors that will determine how much unemployment benefit you receive, for example: the number of children per family, whether you have claimed previously and how much you were earning each month whilst employed (taking the average figure from the last 6 months).
Typically, the amount will be 70% of the gross amount of your monthly wage for the first 6 months. After this, the percentage is then reduced to 50% of your monthly wage.
However, there are minimum and maximum amounts that you can claim, for example the maximum amount available in 2020 for people without children is €1098.09, and the minimum is €501.98.
Please note: The Government will deduct your social security contribution from your unemployment benefits (of course, the amount varies per person). Therefore, whilst receiving unemployment benefit, the worker must remain registered with Social Security and deductions will be made for things such as; Family Protection, Retirement, Permanent Disability, Death and Survival, Temporary Disability, Maternity, Health and Pharmaceutical Assistance.
The amount deducted will be the average of the worker’s contributions for these things in the last six months of employment. However, payment of the business contribution will be made in full by the Spanish Public Employment Service.
