Do I receive an end-of-year bonus as a temporary worker?

As a temporary worker you are entitled to an end-of-year bonus. You will receive this from the Social Fund for Temporary Employees. You must meet a number of criteria.

65 days or 494 hours

You must have worked at least 65 days or 494 hours between 1 July 2021 and 30 June 2022 to receive an end-of-year bonus in December 2022.


An end-of-year bonus amounts to 8.33% of your gross salary. That is then your gross year-end bonus. This is subtracted from that:

  • 13,07 % social Security contributions

  • 23,22 % withholding tax

How do I get that?

  • You will receive a document from the Social Fund for Temporary Agency Workers. You don't have to do anything for that, unless you moved in the past year.

  • You fill in that document.

  • You hand in the completed document to your trade union or to the Social Fund.

  • They will pay this from 2 January 2023.
