You have the opportunity to apply for work in another EEA country for up to three months while receiving unemployment insurance benefits from Denmark.
You have to register with the local job centre in the city you go to. If you do not know where to find it, you can ask at the local city hall or library. FTFa is not familiar with the location of job centres abroad.
You can take your unemployment insurance benefits with you abroad for three months if you:
- Are a citizen of an EEA country
- Are a member of a Danish unemployment insurance fund
- Live and reside in Denmark on the day of departure
- Have been unemployed for at least four weeks. However, dispensations can be made.
- Are eligible for unemployment insurance benefits the day you leave
- Have applied for EEA-unemployment benefits before you leave Register at the local job centre in the city you travel to
- Are available for the labour market in the country you travel to Remain in the country in which you have applied for EEA-unemployment benefits
If you do not find work in the country you have gone to, you must return to Denmark and register at the job centre before the three months have passed. Otherwise, you will lose your eligibility for unemployment insurance benefits in Denmark.
