Notifying the UWV that you are going on holiday while receiving unemployment benefit (WW)
If you are receiving unemployment benefit (WW), you are entitled to receive 20 days of holiday leave. During this period, you will continue to receive your benefit and you do not need to look for work. However, you do need to notify the UWV before you go on holiday.

Notifying the UWV that you are going on holiday
You need to notify the UWV of your holiday (in Dutch). You can do this using the WW amendment form (in Dutch). You will need your DigiD to do this. If your holiday plans change – for instance, if you decide to stay longer – you must report this to the UWV.
