SU as a permanent resident while working abroad

Indlægaf spe617 » 10.02.2017 18:32:00

Hello,

I went for a study abroad and now I have been offered a contract to work for 4 months in the country where I studied abroad (EU country).
While, I was studying abroad I was eligible to get SU. However, now when I work should I make any changes to my SU?

Thanks in advance! :)

It depends on the salary. If it exceeds what you may earn, you must inform the SU-office, just as if you were earning the salary in DK.

First of all, thank you for the quick response!

Well, is it before or after taxes? Anyway, for the 4 months I would expect to earn ~40 000 DKK without the SU, but I would be student until the summer. Would that be an issue?

If you are not studying anymore, you are not entitled to SU, and you have to inform the SU-office about that too. It is fraud not to inform them. You are also not entitled to SU if you take a furlough in order to work, but intend to continue your studies later. The amount you are allowed to earn will increase because you don't receive SU.

Thank you for the reply.

No, I am studying, I will combine the time of writing my thesis with work.

There is a limit of how much you are allowed to earn while receiving SU. You can ask SU Styrelsen for advice on this issue.
