Will a suspension period be set before payment of daily allowance begins?

A suspension period, meaning a period in which benefits are not paid, will be set in certain cases, such as if you quit your job without a cause that is acceptable in labour market policy terms. The suspension period is set by the TE Office, and such a decision is binding upon the KOKO fund

The suspension period is often confused with the 5-day waiting period, which is set by KOKO. The waiting period applies for instance when you apply for daily allowance for the first time. The waiting period is a period corresponding to 5 full working days during (7 days for all waiting periods starting on or after 1 January 2024) which you would normally be paid daily allowance. The waiting period can only be set after a suspension period or the periodization of a financial benefit paid by the employer.
