You can qualify for sickness benefit if you are unable to work due to illness or if you have suffered an incapacitating injury. You must live in Denmark and pay tax on your earnings in order to qualify for sickness benefit.
There are different rules for when and how you receive sickness benefit:
- If you are unemployed, you must register your sickness absence on Jobnet
- If you are a wage-earner, you must notify your employer that you are ill
- If you are self-employed, you must report your illness via NemRefusion
