The central index was exceeded in October 2022. As a result, certain social benefits will be indexed by 2% in November 2022. This has an impact on the company supplements paid in the context of unemployment schemes with company supplements (RCC/SWT).
As from 1 November 2022, the minimum amounts of unemployment benefits (RCC/SWT) will be increased as follows:
Daily amount (6 days/week)
Head of household
From 1 November 2022, the maximum unemployment benefit (RCC/SWT) will be €60,74 (or €1,579.24 per month).
The ceiling for the reference wage will be raised on 1 November 2022 as a result of the index. The ceiling will now be €4,719.00.
Company supplements granted before 1 November 2022 will be indexed by 2% on 1 November 2022. However, in some sectors, such as the upholstery sector (JC 126) or the hides and skins industry (JC 128), this indexation takes place at the same time as the indexation of the sector scales.
The RCC/SWT is not subject to normal social contributions. A 6.5 % social contribution intended for the NSSO will be deducted from the total amount of the unemployment benefit and the (legal and extralegal) company supplement.
However, the application of the above withholding may not cause the total amount of the system of unemployment with company supplement to fall below certain thresholds.
As of 1 November 2022, the thresholds for applying these withholdings in case of conventional RCC/SWT (CLA No 17) or half-time bridging pension (CLA No 55) are determined as follows:
Unemployed with company supplement
without dependant (€/month) (1)
with dependant (€/month) (1)
CLA No 17
CLA No 55
NB: The 6.5% withholding will be limited or will not be applied when the (full) withholding would cause the amount of the unemployment benefit + the company supplement to fall below the above minimum amount based on the dependent family members.
On 1 November 2022, the amount of the penalty imposed when an employee with RCC/SWT is not replaced will also be adjusted. The fine is now €18.17.
