dc.description.abstractIn Belgium unemployment insurance benefits can only exhaust for one category of workers:partners of workers with (replacement) labour income (mostly women) may loose theirentitlement after an unemployment duration ranging from two to eight years, depending onindividual characteristics. We contrast three propensity score matching estimators of theimpact of benefit exhaustion on the probability of employment: a standard, a before-after andan IV matching estimator. We conclude that benefit expiration is anticipated as from themoment at which the worker is notified, three months in advance, and that it graduallyincreases the employment rate up to 25 percentage points 14 months after benefitwithdrawal.en_US
