How do Scholarships Affect Other Welfare Benefits?

Unemployment Benefits: Scholarships are in most countries not considered taxable income and therefore do not disqualify people receiving scholarships from unemployment benefits.

Pension: In rare cases scholarships may pay pension premiums and thereby positively affect your future pension.

Parental Benefits: As scholarships do not constitute taxable income they do not negatively affect eligibility for parental benefits.

Sickness: Normally scholarships do not negatively affect eligibility for sickness benefits
