More than 60,000 employees have successfully signed up for the Unemployment Insurance Programme since it came into effect on January 1. The scheme endeavours to provide financial security to workers and professionals in the public and private sectors in case of job losses.

The programme, implemented through a federal decree (No 13 of 2022), does not incur any additional costs for employers.

According to the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MoHRE), 86 per cent of participants chose to sign up on the website www.iloe.ae, one of seven channels provided by the Dubai Insurance Company, the insurance complex in charge of providing the insurance service.

Other subscription channels include the smart application of the insurance complex, self-service kiosks, businessmen’s service centres, Al Ansari Exchange, and smartphone applications of banks in the country, as well as telecom bills.

According to MoHRE, 90 per cent of those who signed up chose to subscribe to the scheme annually. This option is given to two categories of individuals who are covered by the insurance. One category includes those whose basic wage is Dhs16,000 or less.

The subscription amount is Dhs5 per month (Dhs60 yearly), and the maximum value of the monthly payment is Dhs10,000. The other is made up of those whose base wage is more than Dhs16,000; the monthly subscription fee for this group is Dhs10 (Dhs120 annually). The maximum monthly compensation amount is Dhs20,000.
