For the last 9 years I have been covered by TEBE (apart from about 3 months on IKA years ago) so I am trying to find out some of the nitty-gritty IKA questions that make my friendly local KEP employees stare off into the distance and shrug their shoulders
I have a 6 month job for the season working approx 8 hrs?day for 6 days a week. This job comes with 'Full' IKA (rather than putting me down as the indoor plant waterer working just 20 minutes a day
I understand from another thread that, when I have accumulated the required days, my wife & kids can be added to my IKA account and they are covered. I also understand that I will be entitled to claim unemployment benefit if I can not find winter work.
For part time IKA, which we have had employees on in the past, they have to complete two 6 month seasons before being able to claim unemployment benefit. Is that the cas also with 'full' IKA?
Secondly, if my wife also works and gets IKA, will she also be entitled to unemployment benefit in her own right?
Thirdly, What happens to the kids if we are both on IKA? Are they put on one account or both?
Getting these answers via the official channels is proving a little difficult as always and I would appreciate the help if any of you have experience of this.
