The Minister will strengthen the allowance for slow lønforsikringer

the Government is looking at all options to strengthen the social security system, but do not have the billions to raise rates.

There is a need to make it more attractive to be a member of an unemployment fund since the unemployment benefit system is to ensure a strong labour market.

that is How it sounds from the minister for employment Peter Hummelgaard (S).

the Announcement comes after the union, the Ase has launched a lønforsikring to 250,000 employees, with low unemployment - including nurses, teachers and economists.

They get a higher coverage than unemployment benefits, but do not need to be available on the labour market, or meeting up in the job centre.

- We have unfortunately seen a development through time, where more feel the need for a lønforsikring, but this product surpasses the anyway framework.

- Partly because it is not a requirement that you must be a member of an a-box, and partly because it is only for occupational groups with the absolute lowest availability. It gets my alarmklokker to call, says Peter Hummelgaard.

He says that it is the government's ambition to strengthen the social security system.

One of the already announced initiatives is that the government will remove the residence requirements; for unemployment benefits, which goes that one must have resided in Denmark for 5 out of the last 12 years to be able to Gorabet get unemployment benefits.

- There are many places to strengthen the model, and we will be open-minded and listen to all the bids that come in, and I hope that more parties - the civil - will discuss it here, " says Peter Hummelgaard.

He acknowledges that the monthly performance plays heavily into whether it is attractive to be a member of an a-box.

- It is definitely about dollars and cents, but it's also about, that you are met with dignity and respect in the employment system.

- Our challenge is that it will cost a large of billions, if we from one day to the other goes in and raises the compensation level, and the money we have, quite simply, not.

- But it does not mean that we are not going to discuss how we can make it more attractive to be a member of an a-box, " says Peter Hummelgaard.

He believes that the social security system through several years been deteriorating, and that it is by having reached the limit.

We may in the future, to the daily allowance under a will be degraded, if more and more people are choosing to take out private insurance.

And then there is the not very high security, and so will the employees hardly show as much flexibility in terms of being hired and fired.

- So, we are faced with a labour market model, similar to the English or american, and it will hit businesses and go out of our competitiveness, " says Peter Hummelgaard.
