A-kasse for iværksættere og selvstændige...

Hvorfor stå i en A-kasse, når man er selvstændig?
En A-kasse er en forsikring imod arbejdsløshed der sikrer dig økonomisk.

I Danmark har man mulighed for at modtage forskellige ledighedsydelser, alt efter ens situation, dette gælder også selvstændige.

En af ydelserne hedder dagpenge, dette er den højeste ydelse man kan opnå som ledig, og det er en væsentlig højere sats end kontanthjælp.

Det kræver at man er medlem af en arbejdsløshedskasse, også kaldet en A-kasse.

Jamen, jeg er allerede medlem af en anden a-kasse? – Det gør ikke noget, det er nemt nok, Frie opsiger dit medlemsskab og sikrer, at din anciennitet flytter med. Og hvis du har betalt forud får du de penge retur igen.

Så tøv ikke. Se mere her: Frie.dk
