My name is Alexandra Nastouli and I am writing to since I would to know if it’s possible for me to get the unemployment benefits from AKA. I was registered in AKA until August 2020 (if I’m not wrong) and from that point I have 36 month contract in Greece which ends at 30th of July 2023.
So, I would like to ask you if I can receive the unemployment benefits from Denmark, and if yes, what’s the procedure I should follow.
Also, I would like to try and search for a job at the country I am citizen of, Greece, firstly. Could I get the a-kasse for 3 months from abroad? How long should I stay in Denmark before I apply for pdu2?
Thanks in advance,

you need to move to Denmark (at least for a while) before you can be eligible for Unemployment benefits (“dagpenge”) from a danish A-kasse.
BUT since you have been member of a danish A-kasse within the last 5 years it will be easier for you to get dagpenge from the danish A-kasse.
However this requires that you have been insured against unemployment in Greece.
As an EU-citizen you can use PD U1 document to transfer your acquired rights (insurance periods and working periods) from the Greek Unemployment Insurance Scheme to the danish A-kasse.
In the danish A-kasse the insurance period and working period in Greece can then be used to meet the requirements for being eligible for dagpenge in Denmark.

After you have been approved to get dagpenge from an danish A-kasse, you can use PD U2 to keep your dagpenge from the danish A-kasse while searching for job in another EU-country. As a starting point you need to have been unemployed for 4 weeks before you can use PD U2. However if you go to search for job in your home EU-country (Greece) you only need to have been unemployed 1 week before you can use PD U2.

We recommend that you also talk to AKA (or another danish A-kasse) before moving to be sure about your rights.
