HK is one of Denmark's cheapest unemployment insurance funds for recent graduates
As a full time member it costs only DKK 467 per month. The entire amount is automatically deducted in your tax statement, so the real price is much less.
(Of the DKK 467, DKK 368 is a state contribution which is the same amount for all unemployment funds).
When you join the unemployment insurance fund in connection with completing your education, there are fixed unemployment benefit rates.
The unemployment benefit rates depend on your age, whether you are a provider or non-provider and whether you are insured full-time or part-time with the unemployment insurance fund. You are a provider if you have one or more children under the age of 18.
You are also welcome to try our unemployment benefit calculator. (Danish only)
If you are entitled to unemployment benefits on the basis of your education (if you graduate and join the unemployment insurance fund in connection with completing your education), you are entitled to unemployment benefit for 1 year.
If you are already a member of the unemployment insurance fund and have a current unemployment benefit entitlement from earlier unemployment, you can use this right at the rate you were previously paid. However, if you were paid unemployment benefit as a newly qualified non-provider your rate will be reduced.
Fill out the form education completed
You must fill in the form Education completed no later than 14 days after you have finished your education. You must fill it out regardless of whether you have got a job, do not have a job yet and need to apply for unemployment benefit, start a new education or interrupt the education you are in.
Fill out the unemployment declaration form, if you do not have a job efter your education
You must fill out an unemployment declaration form if you want to apply for unemployment benefits. Read our general information about the declaration form.
