Why choose ‘salary insurance’? Finansforbundet’s unemployment insurance fund provides one of the best-value salary insurance policies on the market – i.e. one of the least expensive and providing some of the best coverage.
It can be hard to live comfortably on unemployment benefits of DKK 19,728 gross per month (2023 figures), especially if you had a high salary before. Salary insurance gives you that little extra peace of mind by providing a solid supplement to your unemployment benefits. We cover up to 90 percent of your previous salary.
Bear in mind also that your premium is tax-deductible in the same way that unemployment benefits from the fund are.
