Advantages of joining an a-kassa
- Joining an a-kassa gives you financial security if you should become unemployed.
- When you have been a member of an a-kassa for 12 months you may be eligible for income based benefit.
- If you are not a member of an a-kassa, or if you have not been a member for 12 months, you can only apply for the basic benefit.
