Tax and labour market contributions on benefits

The payments you receive from CA are naturally taxable.

We automatically receive your current tax details from the Danish tax authorities. Your part is to make sure at skat.dk that you have an active tax card. If you do not have an active tax card, we will have to deduct tax at a rate of 55% from your payments.

The 8% labour market contribution which is payable on paid work is not payable on your benefits.

Once you have your benefit rate and know your tax details, you can see the net amount you will receive on the website of the Danish tax authorities. Please choose the right income type – unemployment benefits (unemployment insurance fund).
