Workers will temporarily leave the programme in one of the following cases:
- Working full time for another person for less than six months.
- Being self-employed for less than six months.
- Exceeding the income limit for less than six months.
- Moving abroad to search for work or to carry out work, professional development or international cooperation for a continuous period of less than six months.
- Going abroad for no more than 15 calendar days once a year will not be considered to be a change of residence, even though the recipient is obliged to inform the Social Security of this situation.
Once they have left the programme for any of the provided reasons, the interested party will only be able to rejoin by submitting an application within 15 days of finishing their self-employed work, or upon returning to Spain, after registering as a job seeker and reactivating the Commitment to Work on the day of the application. An application made outside this time frame will result in the loss of as many days of income as there are between the date on which they would have rejoined the programme if they had made the request in a timely manner and the date on which the application was actually made.
If they leave the programme because they no longer meet the lack of individual income or family unit requirement, the worker will rejoin the programme the day after the date of application, as long as they can once again prove that they meet the requirements within six months of temporarily leaving the programme, after registering as a job seeker and reactivating the commitment to work.
After leaving a full-time job where they were employed by another person, the worker will once again receive active insertion income as long as they are registered as a job seeker and the administrative body is aware of the involuntary nature of their job termination due to its being a temporary relationship or if this involuntary termination is recorded in their working life report.
