Declaration of unemployment/applying for unemployment benefits

Instructions for online procedure.

As newly unemployed, you have to inform your local job centre (jobnet.dk) about your status and apply for unemployment benefits from your unemployment insurance fund – 'a-kasse'

You have to register as a job seeker at Jobnet.dk on the first day that you are unemployed. At jobnet.dk you also have to create your own CV, before your CV-meeting with your a-kasse and no later than two weeks after registered as unemployed.

To be eligible for benefits, you need to fill in and send a declaration of unemployment (ledighedserklæring or ansøgning om dagpenge) [Link til a-kassens ledighedserklæring/ansøgning om dagpenge].

You can apply for unemployment benefits when you are unemployed after a working-period (as an employee or self-employed) or you can apply as a newly graduate.

If you apply for unemployment benefits after a working period, you must meet several conditions to be entitled to Danish unemployment benefits. If you apply for unemployment benefits as a newly graduate, there are some other conditions, you must meet. You can learn more about the conditions at Life in Denmark’s website.

In order to approve your right to benefits, the a-kasse will receive information about your income and working hours from the Danish income register (indkomstregisteret).

Below you will find some phrases and questions that you usually will be asked when applying for unemployment benefits from your 'a-kasse'.

If you have any questions when filling in the form, please contact your 'a-kasse' for more information.

The purpose of the application for unemployment benefit (ledighedserklæring) is that the unemployment insurance fund can obtain sufficient information to decide on your entitlement to unemployment benefit. This means, among other things, that the unemployment insurance fund will ask you the following:

  • Whether and when you were registered with the job centre and whether you can take over work with a day's notice during normal working hours. The reason is that entitlement to unemployment benefit is conditional on being available for work. While receiving benefits, you must be available for the labour market. That means that you are required to be available for employment opportunities - work. It also means that you are obliged to apply actively for jobs you can maintain and accept relevant jobs. You have to accept jobs referred by the a-kasse or your job centre at a day’s notice (General).

  • About why you are unemployed – i.e. cause of unemployment. You must state whether you have become unemployed after graduation, resignation or dismissal, or have you become unemployed after a period of self-employment.

  • About your employment. Where have you been employed, during what periods and what is the reason why you have stopped working.

  • About the reason for termination of work – have you been terminated by your employer and, if so, why?  Fixed-term contract, restructuring, cutbacks, job cuts. If you have quit your job (resignation), you must state why you have done so. For example, transport problems, illness, childcare.

  • Whether you apply for unemployment benefits as a newly graduate. Here you will be asked for information about your education. You will also have to tell the unemployment insurance fund whether you did have residence in Denmark before your education began and after the education, and whether you meet the language requirement. The language requirement for graduates means that you must possess a level of Danish equal to Dansk 2. For example, you have met the language requirement if you have completed a degree taught in Danish. If you don’t meet the language requirement for graduates, you can meet the requirement by having at least 600 hours of employment within 12 months of the last 24 months.

  • Whether you apply for unemployment benefit after cessation of self-employment. Here you will be asked about the company's CVR number, whether you own part of a company and how you have ceased the business.

  • Whether you work part time or have reduced your working hours. If you work part time as an employee or self-employed, you can receive supplementary unemployment benefit for 30 weeks. If you as an employee are covered by a notice period, you must have a release certificate.

  • Information about income and activities. You must provide information about everything that may affect your entitlement to unemployment benefit. This may be, for example, board work, unpaid work, self-employment as a sideline activity, asset management (formueforvaltning) and leisure activities (fritidsbeskæftigelse).

  • About your citizenship and work and residence permit. The reason is that you can only receive unemployment benefits if you have legal residence in Denmark and are allowed to work in Denmark.

The EU regulation establishing the Single Digital Gateway (SDG) says that cross border users from other EU countries must have access to information and self-service solutions on, among other things, unemployment.

In this guide, you can find information on how to fill out the unemployment insurance funds' (a-kassens) online procedure regarding declaration of unemployment and applying for unemployment benefits.

It is important that you answer the questions correctly. It may have consequences for your entitlement to unemployment benefit if you provide incorrect information or fail to disclose circumstances of importance to your entitlement to unemployment benefit. Information which turns out to be incorrect may lead to claims for reimbursement of unemployment benefits and loss of rights.

If you find it difficult to find a specific question or word in the instructions, you can use the search function in pdf/word.

Please contact the “a-kasse”, if you have any questions or need help when completing the online.
