If you are over the age of 30, you must register for and pay a subscription to the early retirement scheme. You must also have been entitled to unemployment benefit at the start of your study programme.
Irrespective of whether you are under or over 30 years of age, there is an income limit for free membership:
- If your study programme is eligible for a state study grant (SU), you may not earn more than the maximum annual benefit level.
- If you are a trainee, you must not have paid work alongside your trainee job.
- If your study programme is remunerated through a combination of a state study grant and trainee wages, you must contact FTFa, of which the unemployment insurance fund of Finansforbundet is a part, to hear more about your options.
If you are in a situation in which you have lost the right to unemployment benefit, and you are unemployed, you can become a free member. However, it is a requirement that you are registered at jobnet.dk, and you must not be in receipt of public support such as cash assistance or rehabilitation benefit.
