Getting Unemployment Insurance in Korea
« on: February 08, 2019, 10:12:09 AM »
 Has anyone here claimed pogy in Korea? How hard is it to get on? How long does it last? What could possibly disqualify you?

The only foreigners I know that can get it are F-4 holders. On average people get it for 3 months.

Last I checked F-2 holders arenít entitled to receiving it (rules may have changed but I doubt it), not are any other work or residency visa holders...even though everyone pays into the system.

F-5 holders might be eligible though, but Iíve not heard any cases of such.

F-5ís can receive unemployment

For myself, I am entitled to 55% of my salary for 11 months after my contract expires.
