The December bonus is scheduled to be paid on December 15th.

An extra 6% of the undiminished December bonus is paid for each dependent child, or 5.647 kr.

Tax is paid on the December bonus.

To be entitled to the full December bonus, job seekers must have been registered as unemployed for 10 months in the year of 2022 and have a full benefit entitlement.

Jobseekers who have been registered as unemployed for less than 10 months, are paid in proportion to the number of months that they have been registered and in accordance with their benefit entitlement.

Example regarding less than 10 months of registration:

If you have been registered for 4 months and have a 100% entitlement, then you are entitled to 40% of the December bonus, or 37.647 kr.

I received unemployment benefits in 2022 but not for the month of November:

Then you are not entitled to the December bonus. The condition is that the jobseeker must confirm their job search between November 20th and December 3rd and been considered insured by the unemployment insurance during the month of November.
