Renewing the job application is automatic in several Autonomous Communities and in Ceuta and Melilla, but to know where, it is advisable to follow a few previous steps.
The Autonomous Communities and the SEPE agreed to renew the job demand, seal the unemployment, automatically until April 30. Having the DARDE card up to date is essential to collect unemployment benefits and subsidies, for example, but also to qualify for certain job offers.
To avoid queues and trips that cause Covid19 infections, this procedure will not have to be done until April 30. Although this date may be extended for the fourth wave, there is still nothing concrete.
Updating the DARDE card, under normal conditions, can be done through the internet, with an electronic certificate or user number, and at the renewal points of the employment offices.
Sealing the strike is automatic, but the same State Public Employment Service recommends contacting the offices by calling the corresponding telephone number in the province of residence.
Where is unemployment renewed automatically?
Some of the Autonomous Communities where it is not necessary to take care of renewing the unemployment card during the health emergency are: Andalusia, Canary Islands, Castilla y León, Castilla La Mancha, Catalonia, Cantabria, Extremadura, Galicia, Balearic Islands, Navarra, Madrid, Basque Country and the Autonomous Cities of Ceuta and Melilla.
During the State of Alarm, the renewal of the job request is automatic. Although this exceptional situation ends on May 9, the President of the Government has already announced that a new extension is not in his plans, if the experts do not say otherwise. In this case, how to renew the unemployment card? Will it continue to be automatic or will we have to go to the offices?
Well, it is not known. But, in any case, the same procedure will have to be followed as before the coronavirus crisis began.
How to renew unemployment benefit?
It can be done in two ways: in person at the employment offices or in the Virtual Office. In the administration facilities there are machines, similar to ATMs, in which, by entering the data of the unemployed person, the demand can be renewed.
On the other hand, to seal the unemployment card at the Electronic Headquarters, the digital certificate is required, although, in the case of not having it, there is a special area enabled to enter with the user data and password that the workers assign to the applicant of employment once you first sign up.
When these points have already been entered, the so-called ‘contrast data’ will appear. Here could be the verification codes to certify the identity of the user.
After the cyberattack, the SEPE gradually resumed all its functions. One of the first was precisely the granting and application of unemployment benefits. To do this, it is essential to be discharged from unemployment.
In addition, ERTE workers already have a specific space within the Electronic Headquarters. But, in this case, the responsibility for making any changes or modifications lies with the company.
Renew the demand in the employment offices
The first option is to seal the stoppage in person, once the automatic update has finished. In this case, in the employment offices of the CCAA there are special points available where, as in an ATM, you will have to enter personal data. Then, press ‘Renew’ and a new date will be generated.
This is the date that must be marked on the calendar so that you do not forget to renew the unemployment card. Remember that, if this is the case, the SEPE may suspend the collection of the unemployment benefit.
It may happen that the DARDE card is lost and that, not having it on hand, the user does not know when it is their turn to renew it. In these cases it is best to go to the employment offices by appointment, so that the official makes a duplicate.
Renew the unemployment card at the Electronic Office
The SEPE enables its Electronic Office to carry out certain procedures, including renewing the job application. Therefore, after April 30, this update is recommended to be done online to avoid queues and lower the risk of contagion.
The first thing is to enter the Virtual Office of the INEM, where the system will require an identification, either with the electronic certificate or by means of username, password and contrast data.
The renewal of the job application online can be done one day before the deadline, and it is advisable to do it in hours where it is assumed that the system will not be collapsed.
One of the advantages is that the strike can be sealed at any time, wherever you are and that, when the procedure is finished, the user will receive a document in .pdf format by email that will serve as proof.
