If you want to apply for an unemployment benefit and top-up benefit at the same time, you can use the unemployment application form (‘WW-uitkering aanvragen’) to apply for both. You will need a DigiD account to do this.
If you are already receiving an unemployment benefit and want to apply for a separate top-up benefit, complete the top-up benefit application form (‘Toeslag aanvragen’).
If you are applying for, or receiving, an IOW or sickness benefit and want to apply for a top-up benefit, complete the top-up benefit application form (‘Toeslag aanvragen’). Please also use this form if you are not receiving an UWV benefit and are receiving a lower salary because you are ill.
You might also qualify for a top-up benefit when applying for, or receiving, a WIA, WAO, WAZ or Wajong benefit. If this is the case, complete the Top-up benefit application form when receiving an occupational disability benefit (‘Aanvragen toeslag als u een WIA-, Wajong-, WAO- of Waz-uitkering heeft’). You will need a DigiD account to do this.
