a-kasser application

I have a question about application for a-casser. I will have an examination soon and one week after my exam I will be 30 years old. Is there special rules for students who are 30 years old at the moment when they have the last exam?
Kind regards"

Hi "J",

thank your for your question.

The rule you maybe have heard about regarding the age of 30 is only relating to FREE study-membership when you still study.
When graduate/finish study there is no constraints wheather you are below or over 30 years.
But as new graduate it is very important that you apply for membership NO LATER than 2 weeks after ending study.
But if you have less than 6 months left you can already now apply for membership under the rule for new graduates.

Remember when applying to mention that you want to have the benefits for new graduates.

Best regards,
