Full-time or part-time insurance?

Should I choose full-time or part-time insurance?

When you join Min A-kasse, you need to decide whether you want to be insured full-time or part-time.

Your choice of insurance type affects your membership fee, how much you can receive in unemployment benefits and to what extent you need to be available for work.

Full-time insured

  • If you work more than 30 hours a week, you must be insured full-time.

Part-time insured

  • If you work 30 hours a week or less, you can choose whether you want to be insured full-time or part-time.

Are you a recent graduate?

Unemployment fund member as a recent graduate

Are you a student and about to graduate? Then it's a good idea to join an unemployment fund. This is the easiest way to acquire your right to unemployment benefits, as you receive them based on your education. This way, you are guaranteed unemployment benefits if you become unemployed as a recent graduate.

What do I get as a member of Min A-kasse?

We know that being out of work as a graduate can be difficult. Questions like "How do I get my unemployment benefits?", "How do I navigate the employment system's jungle of rules?" and "How do I get a job?" take up a lot of space at a time when you should be happy and relieved to have finished your education.

At Min A-kasse, you'll get an advisor who focuses on you and your needs and helps you move on safely after you've completed your education. We help ensure that you receive your unemployment benefits on time, so that you have financial security and we can focus on finding the right job for you.

Are you a student?

Are you a trainee with less than 12 months of training left?

If you have less than 12 months left of your apprenticeship, you can easily wait to join until you have completed your education. Then you can get a membership according to the rules for recent graduates (see above).

Learner with more than 12 months of education left?

You can be admitted under the rules for salaried employees if you are a student on an approved training program, have at least 12 months left of your apprenticeship and are in an internship at the time of admission. This means you can receive unemployment benefits from the first day of unemployment after you have completed your apprenticeship. However, you must meet the other conditions for entitlement to unemployment benefits.

You can get an individual unemployment benefit rate calculated at 90% of the trainee salary you have received in the last 3 months, with a maximum of DKK 20,359 per month (2024 figure) for full-time insured and DKK 13,573 (2024 figure) per month for part-time insured. You can also choose to receive a graduate rate. See the graduate rates here.

If you sign up 12 months before your apprenticeship, you must send an application form to Min A-kasse together with your last monthly payslip. Remember that there must be at least 12 months left of your apprenticeship when we receive your application form. If you are registering as a graduate, we must receive your application form within 14 days after you have completed your education.

Are you a state pensioner?

You can continue to be an unemployment insurance fund member with us when you become a state pensioner. Your membership will then be converted to a so-called senior membership, where you only pay an administration fee (DKK 125 per month in 2024).

You are not entitled to benefits - but to job search guidance.

Become a member of Min A-kasse for only 506 DKK/month.
