When can I receive benefits from the Workers’ Union’s illness fund?

The Faroese Workers’ Union has an illness fund, which will pay DKK 2,500 a month for a three-month period, if you have been an active member of the Faroese Workers’ Union for at least one year. The condition is e.g., that you have been on sick leave for more than three consecutive months. Talk to your local branch and they will give you an application form to fill out. The applications are treated swiftly in the Union’s office, which will also help and guide you in filling out the form and advise you on your rights.
