Salary insurance

With salary insurance you will, for a period of time, be able to get more than the standard unemployment benefits. We collaborate with TopDanmark.

Salary insurance is a supplemental private insurance you can use at times of unemployment. With salary insurance, you can get as much as 90 percent of your previous salary - including unemployment benefits and other benefits - for a year. There is a maximum of DKK 40.000 per month in addition to your unemployment benefits.

The salary insurance will take effect, if you are:

  • laid off
  • unemployed due to illness
  • unemployed due to an accident


The salary insurance will not take effect if you resign or if you are laid off due to fraud.

If you want to know more about your options, call TopDanmark on 44 74 35 50 or learn more about salary insurance on TopDanmark's website.
