Methodological note

Unemployment benefits are managed by the SEPE (State Public Employment Service).

The contributory benefits for unemployment may be for full or partial unemployment, depending on whether the loss of the job affects the whole or part of the working day.

The SEPE also manages welfare unemployment benefits, which are not contributory and which can be received by collectives of unemployed people with certain socio-economic characteristics.

The agricultural subsidy is only applicable to the autonomous communities of Extremadura and Andalucía.
