The initial category encompasses individuals whose base pay amounts to Dh16,000 or less. The insurance premium allocated to the employee in this particular category is established at a rate of Dh5 per month, which amounts to Dh60 on an annual basis. Additionally, the monthly remuneration is subject to a maximum limit of Dh10,000 per month.

The second category comprises individuals whose basic wage surpasses Dh16,000. For this category, the UAE unemployment insurance premium amounts to Dh10 per month or Dh120 per year. Additionally, these individuals are eligible for a monthly payout of up to Dh20,000.

The eligibility for claiming UAE unemployment insurance compensation is contingent upon the insurer, who is an employee, having maintained a subscription to the program for a minimum duration of 12 consecutive months. The assertion may be filed within a period of 30 days subsequent to the termination of employment, and it will undergo processing within a span of two weeks following its filing. The insured’s entitlement to compensation is relinquished if they choose to terminate their residency and depart the country, or engage in new employment, during the processing period.

The remuneration is determined as 60 percent of the mean fundamental wage for the preceding six-month period prior to joblessness, and disbursed for a maximum duration of three months for each application, commencing from the day of unemployment.

Individuals who are not required to subscribe to this service encompass several categories, such as investors who are the proprietors of the establishment where they are employed, domestic assistants, employees with temporary employment contracts, individuals under the age of 18, and retirees who get a retirement pension and have subsequently obtained new employment.
