As a member you can buy extra security by joining CA Legal Support after graduation. This may save you up to DKK 4,776 per year compared to unemployment insurance funds and trade unions total solutions. The solution is for you who in fact only need unemployment insurance and legal counselling in case of a dispute with a future employer.

Membership fees for a number of unemployment insurance funds and trade unions are found here.

 

Get 1 month's extra financial benefits

If you have been a student member for over one year, you will be eligible for unemployment benefits already the day after you have finished your education. Today this amounts to DKK 15,279 per month for providers and DKK 13,323 per month for non-providers.

As a graduate you would normally have to wait one month in order to be considered eligible for unemployment benefits. This way you get a nice cash profit by being a student member if you do not have a job after graduation.

You have to be a resident of an EEA country, be under the age of 30, follow an educational course with a duration of at least 18 months and with a minimum of 90 ECTS, reside and stay in Denmark (also before you start studying) and have a yearly income of less than DKK 223,596,- (SU included) per year (2018 figure).

If you finish your studies soon

To avoid any unpleasant surprises when you graduate, you must take note of a number of rules. Remember that your bachelor’s degree counts as a separate education even if you continue studying.

If you are over 30

A number of legal requirements apply to free student membership. If you are 30 years or above, the rules are more stringent. These requirements are the same across all unemployment funds.
