I am receiving a daily allowance and am considering taking part-time employment through a billing cooperative. How does this affect my daily allowance?

If you accept work through a billing cooperative, you will be considered an entrepreneur for the purposes of unemployment security. If such work is considered a secondary occupation, you may be entitled to an adjusted daily allowance. The TE Office will issue a statement, binding upon the KOKO fund, as to whether you may be paid earnings-related daily allowance for the duration of your work through a billing cooperative. Contact the TE Office regarding your plans as necessary, and if you do begin such work, notify the TE Office and KOKO.

If you work through a billing cooperative, you must submit copies of agreements concerning assignments and statements of your gross income to KOKO. Your income will be adjusted over the period of the pay. It is not necessary to report your working hours, but please remember to notify us in the application, if you have received income through a billing cooperative during the applied period.
