Can I get a daily allowance from KOKO if I am a student or registered at an educational institution?

If you are a full-time student, the KOKO fund cannot pay you earnings-related daily allowance. This also applies to summer holidays. However, if studying is your secondary occupation, there is no restriction on payment of daily allowance. The TE Office will issue a statement as to whether your studies are full-time or not. Please contact the TE Office to obtain this statement.

Please note that you cannot receive student financial aid or adult education allowance for the same period that you receive earnings-related unemployment allowance. If you receive these benefits, we recommend that you contact the party that pays them before applying for earnings-related unemployment allowance to avoid recovery.
