Your housing benefits depend on your income. Every month, Udbetaling Danmark will look at whether you have received the housing benefits that you are entitled to based on your income information from The Danish Tax Agency.
If there has been changes to your income, Udbetaling Danmark will recalculate your housing benefits for that specific month.
If the change in income means that you have previously received too much or too little in housing benefits, the amount will automatically be deducted from or added to your housing benefits for the following month.
You can see a short video here about why your housing benefits vary.
Your housing benefits are still being calculated once per year
There is a minimum limit which means that your housing benefits are only adjusted on a monthly basis if your income increases or decreases by more than DKK 800 and if this results in your housing benefits changing by more than DKK 200.
Therefore, your housing benefits will still be calculated once per year, and in that context Udbetaling Danmark will send you a letter with a statement of your housing benefits for the entire year.
If you stop working, this may impact your housing benefits
If you resign or get fired from your job, you need to be aware of the fact that your employer will transfer your holiday pay to FerieKonto. This also means that your holiday pay will be reported to The Danish Tax Authority and will be counted as income the month you stop working - even if you have not received the money yet.
Therefore, you need to be aware that you may subsequently receive less in housing benefits because your income will automatically have increased for the month where your holiday pay was reported as income.
Please note, when you receive the holiday pay later, it will not be counted as income.
