What are the contribution conditions for unemployment benefit?

There are two contribution conditions that you must meet to be entitled to unemployment benefit. These are: 1. You must have paid at least 26 social insurance contributions as an employed person in Guernsey at any time in your working life; and 2. You must have paid or had credited at least 26 contributions as an employed person during 2018 (for claims beyond 30 June, this switches to 2019).
