Unemployment benefits, 75-90 pc of standard social indicator

The unemployment benefits will be set at between 75 and 90 per cent of the standard social indicator, at a current value of 500 RON, and no longer related to the minimum salary, with the change to be discussed by the ruling coalition and government, Mediafax quoted official sources as saying. The unemployment benefits account now for 75 per cent of the gross minimum salary in the Romanian economy, adding to which is 3 to 10 per cent of the average gross pay for the past 12 months, depending on the length of the contribution period into the system. The change is aimed at encouraging the unemployed to find a job, as the current system of benefits is not reckoned as conducive to labour reinsertion.
