I just moved from Ireland to Denmark would like to know if there’s any benefits that I can claim while I look for work. Because I am new to the country, I have not been a member with an A-kasse for a year, as required. However, I have been been making unemployment insurance payments in Ireland for the last 5 years.
Is it possible to somehow transfer these rights and receive something here in Denmark as I search for work? I have been here for 5 weeks, but only stopped working for my employer in Ireland this week. (Actually I was here for a week, then went on vacation for 2 weeks, so now have only been officially living here for 2.5 weeks)
I also see that I should have registered with the Danish Jobcenter within 7 days, but I was unaware if I could do this without a CPR number. Does the fact that I still had a job in Ireland until this week have any significance?
Thanks so much for any help!
