Is a-kasse only for people who got fired or I am coverd also when I decide to leave my employer?

I would like to know if a-kasse will support me when it is me who decide to leave the employer. Will I get any benefits for the time when I am looking for a new job?

You can also get Unemployment benefits if it is your self, who have decided to leave the job.

This is what the A-kasse call self-inflicted unemployed (in danish: "selvforskyldt ledig").

However when you are self-inflicted unemployed, you must accept an quarantine for 3 weeks, which means that your Unemployment benefits will be suspended for 3 weeks. So you begin to collect Unemployment benefits ("dagpenge") after 3 weeks.
