Can I get social security, when I am stationed abroad?

In some cases you may be entitled to Danish social security when you are stationed abroad.

You are not automatically entitled to social benefits from Denmark, when you work abroad. Not even if you are a Danish citizen who lives and pays taxes in Denmark and has a Danish employer.

In order to receive social benefits you must be covered by Danish social security.
