Wage insurance

Why take out wage insurance? The unemployment insurance fund of Finansforbundet has a wage insurance scheme that offers some of the best and least expensive coverage on the market. It can be difficult to make ends meet on unemployment benefit of DKK 18,866 gross per month, especially if you come from a highly-paid position. Wage insurance gives you extra security with a solid supplement to your unemployment benefit. We cover up to 90 per cent of your previous salary – and for the first six months, the premium is half price.

​Take out wage insurance and get the premium at half price for the first six months. Remember that you can deduct the premium payment from your tax, just like your unemployment insurance fund contributions.
