WHAT TO DO IF YOU GET SICK?
If you fall ill, you must register as ill on Min side on jobnet.dk on your first sick day.
You must do this whether you receive full unemployment insurance benefits or supplementary benefits. You must also register even if you are ill only one day.
FTFa will be notified automatically that you have registered ill when you do so on jobnet so you do not need to contact FTFa.
When you are well again you must register this on Min side at jobnet.dk so you can receive your unemployment insurance benefits from your fund.
- If you are unemployed full-time you will receive unemployment insurance benefits from your fund the first 14 days you are ill. If you are not well again after 14 days, your local municipality will pay you sickness benefits. You will receive an application form for sickness benefits which you must make sure to return to your municipality within eight days after the letter has been send to you. If you do not receive the application automatically you must contact your municipality no later than five weeks after your first sick day and tell them you want sickness benefits.
- If you are employed part-time and receive supplementary benefits you will not receive sickness benefits from your unemployment insurance fund. Instead you will receive them from your local municipality from your first sick day. You will receive an application form for sickness benefits which you must return within eight days. If you do not receive the application automatically you must contact your municipality no later than three weeks after your first sick day and tell them you want sickness benefits.
You cannot receive sickness benefits or unemployment insurance benefits when ill until you have registered as ill on jobnet.dk. Therefore, it is important that you do so on your first sick day.
If your doctor judges that you are only well enough to work part-time, you must contact FTFa before you register as well on jobnet.dk We must assess if you are eligible for unemployment insurance benefits since it requires you to be available full-time for the labour market.
