Even if you now (after May 2020) have paid work, you can receive the holiday allowance ("feriedagpenge") you earned while receiving unemployment benefits from your A-kasse.

However there are some requirements:

  • You must have used up holiday money earned with your employer(s) before you can receive holiday allowance.
  • You are a member of a A-kasse 
  • You reside in Denmark up to the start of your holiday,
  • You would be entitled to unemployment benefit ("dagpenge") if you became unemployed tomorrow.

Remember to register your holiday at at latest 14 days before the holiday starts.
