I’m at an advantage when I enter

Requirements for a free student membership
You have to be a resident of an EEA country, be under the age of 30, follow an educational course with a duration of at least 18 months and with a minimum of 90 ECTS, reside and stay in Denmark (also before you start studying) and have a yearly income of less than DKK 231,864 (SU included) per year (2021 figure).
Get 1 month's extra financial benefits
If you have been a student member for over one year, you will be eligible for unemployment benefits already the day after you have finished your education. Today this amounts to DKK 15,844 per month for providers and DKK 13,815 per month for non-providers.
As a graduate you would normally have to wait one month in order to be considered eligible for unemployment benefits. This way you get a nice cash profit by being a student member if you do not have a job after graduation.
Special unemployment fund rules for students
To avoid any unpleasant surprises when you graduate, you must take note of a number of rules. Remember that your bachelor’s degree counts as a separate education even if you continue studying.
A number of legal requirements apply to free student membership. If you are 30 years or above, the rules are more stringent. These requirements are the same across all unemployment funds.
Get your money's worth
Have you ever considered the cost of a membership after graduation? There's no law that financial and legal security must be expensive - just as affordable membership does not have to equate compromises and poor service.
Why settle? Join Denmark's best 'a-kasse'
Get the best service and the best offers from CA - the unemployment insurance fund with the industry's most satisfied members. We are among the highest rated 'a-kasser' on Trustpilot.
Save loads of money
As a member you can buy extra security by joining CA+. It is free as a student member and only costs DKK 50 per month as a graduate. The solution is for you who in fact only need unemployment insurance and legal counselling in case of a dispute with a future employer.
Transferring to CA is easy
* If you are a member of another unemployment fund, please state its name on the form. We will transfer your membership and seniority. The speed of the process depends on your present unemployment fund. Any advance payment of membership fees to your present unemployment fund will be returned to your NemKonto.
