Proposal to maintain the temporary increased unemployment benefit rate throughout the year

The Government will propose a budget resolution before the Parliament, ensuring that the temporary increased unemployment benefit rate is extended throughout 2020.

The Government has due to COVID-19 implemented several measures to secure jobs, boost the labor market and ensure predictability for the work force in these uncertain times.

Normally the unemployment benefit rate amounts to 62,4 % of the unemployed’s previous income up to 6 G. As a temporary measure, the rate was in March 2020 increased to 80 % of the income up to 3 G and 62,4 % of the income between 3 G and 6 G. This temporary amendment originally applies until 31 October 2020, but is now proposed extended to 31 December 2020.
