according to the new rules that came into force 01.07.2017, you obtain right to benefits if you fullfill both of the following two requirements:
- have earned/have had an income of at least DKK 223,428 (in 2017) during the last 3 years (in total) for full-time insured.
- have been member of an A-kasse for at least the last year before you apply for benefits
You are member now, and have been member of an A-kasse for at least 1 year, so this requirement you fulfill.
About income requirement: you must be aware that only income earned during periods with membership of an A-kasse is counted.
And only a maximum of DKK 18,619 per month can be counted. In this way everybody who apply for Unemployment benefits - regardless of income - must have been working at least 12 months during periods with A-kasse membership, before he/she can claim to being eligible for benefits.
Income you receive in the notice period (the 3 months after termination) is counted when the A-kasse determine whether the DKK 223,428 is reached.
You do not tell for how long you have been working in 2016, but if we assume that you had work from the same month you started in A-kasse, july 2016, then you will have enough months with income (13 months - from july 2016 to august 2017), and if you in total in this period have earned at least DKK 223,428, then you also fullfill the income requirement.
To actually get the Unemployment benefits paid, you must register as unemployed at Jobnet.dk, and tell your A-kasse that you now apply for Unemployment benefits. You can receive benefits earliest from the day you register at Jobnet.dk.
