Your status in the first quarter determines who much you need to pay. No retroactive adjustments can be made. All active members who are in employment pay the full membership fee. Members employed on overseas contracts pay a reduced fee as Pharmadanmark is not under obligation to provide legal assistance with employment contracts that are regulated by the laws of another country. These members retain cover under the association’s Gruppeliv scheme and accrue the right to receive benefits from Pharmadanmark’s unemployment insurance (PDA) if they are made redundant. 

Membership fees are charged quarterly on the following dates: 5 February, 5 May, 5 August and 5 November. Membership fees as of 1 January 2015
