Ik wil een aanvraag doen voor een bijstandsuitkering
Ik heb al een bijstandsuitkering
Am I entitled to social welfare benefits?
That depends on your income, the composition of your family, any additional earnings and your own possessions. Based on all this, we determine whether you have enough money to live from. If you have a partner, his or her income will also be taken into account. Are you aged between 18 and 27 years? Do bear in mind that there is a search period of 4 weeks, in which you are required to give yourself 4 weeks to search for a job or training. That period starts on the day you submitted your request to the UVW. Only after these 4 weeks have elapsed, can you apply for benefits.
I am receiving social welfare benefits. What are my responsibilities?
You will find a list of the general rules and employment responsibilities while in receipt of social welfare benefits at rijksoverheid.nl. The main ones are listed below.
Looking for work
You must do everything you can to find work. That includes applying for jobs or taking part in training courses or workshops offered by the Participatiebedrijf. You can arrange these things with WIJeindhoven. For more information about WIJeindhoven, go to wijeindhoven.nl.
Make sure you stick to all the agreements you have with WIJeindhoven. That way you avoid having your benefits reduced.
Can I get social welfare benefits if I am self-employed?
I am a single parent. Has this impact on my social welfare benefits?
I still have some questions. Can I get in touch?
For questions about your benefits, phone us on 14 040. If necessary, you will be put through to your contact at the municipality. If they are not available, we will make an appointment to phone you back. This will be within 2 working days.
If you have difficulty completing the online form on werk.nl (only in Dutch) and uploading the required documentary evidence, ask someone you know if they will help you. If that isn't possible, you can get help from an independent client support official, at no charge.
How do I report changes in my situation?
Have there been changes in your, or your partner's, income, capital or living situation? You can do that by using the online amendment form.
Make sure you attach all the documents required to the form. We will automatically send you a new amendment form.
If you have any questions about how to fill in the form, or about the change you're reporting, get in touch with us by phoning 14 040.
Wanneer staat de bijstandsuitkering op mijn rekening?
De bijstandsuitkering wordt elke 15e van de maand achteraf betaald. Dit betekent dat de bijstandsuitkering van bijvoorbeeld de maand juli, uiterlijk 15 augustus op je rekening staat. Valt de 15e in het weekend? Dan staat het bedrag de vrijdag ervoor op je rekening.
