Employment history calculator for the scholarship for qualified employee

The employment history calculator for the scholarship for qualified employee enables you to calculate how much employment history you have based on the income you have earned from paid work from 2007 onwards. You are eligible for a scholarship for qualified employee if you have worked for at least five years.

The calculation is an approximate estimate based on the information provided by the user and is not binding on the Employment Fund. If the employment history indicated by the calculator is slightly less or slightly more than the required five years, we recommend for you to send us an application for a precise calculation of your employment history.
