If you are a student and aged under 30, it is possible for you to gain free membership of Finansforbundet’s unemployment insurance fund. Why not sign up today!
You will be entitled to unemployment benefits right away if you have been a member for at least one year when you finish your course. If you delay signing up until you have finished your course, a one-month waiting period will apply, meaning that you will lose out on monthly unemployment benefits of up to DKK 15,868 (2022 figures). We of course don’t need to tell you how annoying that would be, knowing that you could have been a member for free.

Over 30 years old?
If you are aged over 30, we cannot give you completely free membership, but we do waive the administration fee for you, which means that your membership costs a much cheaper DKK 368 per month rather than DKK 468 (2021 numbers). In this case too, you have to be a member for at least one year before the end of your course in order to receive unemployment benefits immediately.
As such, we recommend signing up one year before the end of your course.
