    Based on what I read on the website: Unemployment benefits (a-kasser.dk)

    If you have been unemployed before and need to earn a new unemployment benefit period, the income requirement is replaced by an employment requirement (in danish: “Beskæftigelseskravet“), which means that you must work 1.924 hours before you can start a new 2 years period with benefits (“dagpenge”)

    I have been unemployed before with CA a-kasse and need to earn a new unemployment benefit period and have more than 1924 hours for the last 2 years , but my current AKA a-kasse tells me that I need to have 12 months of membership and over 243,996 earner. Is the rule above correct if you have switched A-kasse companies?

    Hi,

    from 1. july 2017 there came new rules into force.

    if your (first) unemployment period in CA A-kasse expired before July 1, 2017 then you have to meet the income-requirement if you want to earn a new period with dagpenge.

    if your (first) unemployment period in CA A-kasse expired after July 1, 2017, then you will be covered by the new rules, and this means that you can use the employement requirement (beskæftigelseskravet) to earn a new right to dagpenge, but ONLY if you:

    1. have a current right to dagpenge OR
    2. have working hours registered on your “beskæftigelseskonto”. You can see if you have registered hours at Jobnet.dk

    The employment requirement is only possible if you DO NOT have interrupted A-kasse membership periods. So if you had a period between membership of CA A-kasse and AKA without membership, Then You must meet the normal requirements for “first time” unemployed. This means that you must have been member for 1 year and meet the income-requirement.

    But be aware that the income-requirement tell you must have earned DKK 243,996 over the last 3 years in total. But only periods where you have been member of A-kasse can be included in the income-requirement.

    Let me know if you have some comments.

    Best regards,

    Anders Weber, A-kasser.dk
