30% ruling vs unemployment benefit
Dear Expatax, I have a question on how unemployment benefit from UWV influences the 30% ruling. I had the ruling for 2 years when I was made unemployed (my fixed term contract was not extended). I registered in UWV and used the benefit for a month, after which time I found a new job where I intend to apply again for the ruling (I meet all other conditions). Can I lose the ruling because I made use of the employment benefit for 1 month?
As long as you find a job within 3 months after your last work day with your previous employer (where you had the 30% ruling), receiving unemployment benefit in the mean time won’t affect your eligibility for the 30% ruling.
