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 and meet the residency requirement, you will be eligible for unemployment benefits already the day after you have finished your education. Today this amounts to DKK 15,470 per month for providers and DKK 13,489 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.

Special unemployment fund rules for students
