Claiming unemployment benefits after working in Slovenia
If you reside in another EU, EEA country or Switzerland you may choose to register as a job seeker and claim unemployment benefits either in Slovenia or in the country where you reside.
Special rules apply to cross border workers. If you work in Slovenia but reside in another EU country and return there every day or at least once a week, you are a cross-border worker. This means that if you become unemployed, you should register with the employment services and claim unemployment benefits in your country of residence.
If you choose to claim unemployment benefits in your home country you should apply for a portable document U1 (statement of periods to be taken into account for granting unemployment benefits) provided by the Employment Service of Slovenia. The portable document U1 will be sent to the address written on your application. Consult your local employment office about the conditions for claiming unemployment benefits in the country where you reside.
