During an Erasmus+ mobility a participant will only receive a maximum of 2 payments. These payments are made upon receipt of the completed forms as explained here

There are only ever two payments made to any participant, after arrival in the host organisation, and after departure from the host organisation.

At the start of the mobility we can only estimate how long you will be abroad on your Erasmus+, and we use this estimation of months to calculate your first payment. The first payment will be 80% of your estimated duration multiplied by the appropiate grant level for your host country as indicated above. Your estimated duration will be entered into your Grant Contract.

At the end of your mobility we will take the start date from your confirmation of arrival document, and the end date of your confirmation of departure document and use these to calculate your actual duration.

Please note:

  • If this duration is more than the original estimated duration your second allocation grant will be increased to reflect this change.
  • If it is less than the original estimated duration your second allocation grant will be decreased to reflect this also.
  • The minimum duration for a Traineeship mobility is 2 months, and the minimum duration for a Study mobility is 3 months.

Payment Schedules

Each month there is a closing date for receipt of forms. The closing dates are indicated in the below table.  Payments are made no more than once a month.

Month Sept. Oct. Nov. Dec. Jan. Feb. Mar Apr. May Jun. Jul. Aug.
Closing Date 15th 15th 15th 05th NA 15th 15th 15th 15th 15th 15th 15th
Payment Date no later than 30th 30th 30th 15th NA 28th 30th 30th 30th 30th 30th 30th

There is no way to know exactly as to when the final date that payment will be made each month as it is dependant on a number of internal as well as external factors.

These payment schedules apply whether you are due payment one or payment two.

Participants who miss the closing date for form submission within a month (whether it is payment one or two) will need to submit the required forms by the closing date of the next month in order to be eligible for payment.
