Anticipated NASpI: unemployment allowance paid in an advance lump sum (for workers made redundant from 1st May 2015)

Publication: 01/03/2022

The beneficiary of the NASpI allowance, which aims to assist with self-employed work activities, sole proprietorships or help with the purchase of co-operative share capital, can claim an advance lump sum of the total amount of the NASpI.

The anticipated NASpI allowance payment can be claimed by beneficiaries of the NASpl allowance who were made redundant from 1st May 2015 and who intend to:

  • Start self-employment
  • Start a sole-proprietorship;
  • Purchase co-operative share capital and form a mutual working relationship therein;
  • Develop, autonomously and on a full-time basis, the self-employed work activity that had already been started during the period of employment which, upon termination, resulted in the receipt of the NASpI allowance (article 8, legislative decree 4th March 2015, n. 22).


The amount of monthly NASpI allowance that is due and has not yet been received is paid in a lump sum. Family allowance (ANF) and imputed contributions are not included. Personal income tax (IRPEF) is applied to the amount paid, in accordance with current regulations.

If the recipient of the NASpI allowance benefits from the allowance at a reduced level equal to 80% of the expected income received from self-employment due to the previous option to aggregate this income and the NASpI allowance, the anticipated payment will be granted in consideration of the remaining amount to be paid, without applying the reduction.


The allowance must be returned if the worker enters a subordinate employment relationship before the end of the period for which the anticipated allowance would have been paid if distributed in monthly instalments. This does not include employment that is the result of purchasing co-operative share capital.


The claimer must be eligible to receive the NASpI allowance.


The claim must be made within 30 days from the start of self-employment, sole-proprietorship or the purchase of co-operative share capital.

If this activity started whilst the claimant had an employment relationship that consequently terminated, leading to the receipt of the NASpI allowance, the claim for anticipated payment must be made within 30 days of the claim for NASpI allowance.


The claim to INPS can be made online using the dedicated service. Before accessing the service, you can download and consult the tutorial "Anticipated NASpI: submission claims" for instructions on filling in the relevant fields. To understand how to use the other NASpI service linked to this tab, we suggest that you also download the tutorial, "NASpI: consultation claims".

Alternatively, the claim can be made by:

  • phoning the contact centre on +39 803 164 (free from Italian landlines) or +39 06 164 164 from mobile phones;
  • Electronic services offered by patronage institutes and intermediaries thereof.

The claim must be accompanied by documentation giving proof of the claimant's efforts to establish the self-employed work activity. If the activity requires a specific authorisation or enrolment in professional or industry registers, they must give details of their registration.

For work activities involving co-operatives, the successful registration of the co-operative in the regional Chamber of Commerce's register of companies must be declared. The co-operative's registration in the national register of Co-operative companies managed by the Chamber of Commerce must also be stated. In addition, the date of the purchase of the co-operative share capital quota(s) must be indicated.
