A-kasser.dk - About Us

Since 2010 we have specialised ourselves in comparing all the danish Unemployment Insurance Funds (A-kasser). In the beginning it was mainly price, number of members and that kind we compared. Since 2014 we have expanded our comparison to include more topics.

We generally focus on investigating in which A-kasser "you get the most out of being a member" - that is, we look at the price, member benefits and member satisfaction among current members.
Through our partners, we have access to statistics, studies, etc. about the danish Unemployment Insurance funds ("A-kasser"). In addition, we closely follow all A-kasser in Denmark - and therefore we are always up to date on special promotions, member offers and new products etc.

A-kasser.dk - as the name implies - is primarily about Unemployment Insurance Funds (A-kasser), and we refer only to Unions where appropriate, in relation to how "to get the most out of being a member."

Furthermore, today we also focus on advising on legislation (rights and obligations) regarding Unemployment benefits and recently we started a blog about jobs, labor market and Unemployment Funds .
