The maximum payout is DKK 18,866 per month, before taxes. To receive the highest rate, your average salary must have been at leastDKK 22,785,- per month (2018 figures).
Benefits are calculated on the basis of your income in the last 24 months before the calculation is made.
We calculate your benefit rate on the basis of your 12 highest-earning months of the 24 months.
Your monthly benefit rate will make up 90% of your average earnings in those 12 months after deduction for labour market contribution (AMB).
There is no minimum benefit rate, because the rate is always calculated based on your salary in the best 12 months within 24 months.
If you only had a salary in, for example, 10 months rather than 12 months in the last 24 months, we calculate your rate on the basis of the average earnings in those 10 months. If you did not have any earnings in the past 24 months, we go back a further 12 months to calculate your rate based on your average pay during this period.
Once your benefit rate has been calculated, a new rate calculation cannot be made before you have earned the right to a new benefit period.
