Payment slips in electronic form

Unemployment payment slips are not sent out in paper through regular mail anymore (from October 2009). They're only displayed electronicly on your personal account at the Directorates of Labour (Vinnumálastofnun) application website and at the Social Insurance (Tryggingastofnun) website  www.tryggur.is/ 

Where can I find the payment slip?
If you are not registered at the Vinnumálastofnun website, you can register with minimal information to get access to the payment slips - see information in this pdf-document.

Go to the Vinnumálstofnun website, www.vinnumalastofnun.is . Login to the web application by clicking on this icon
