I am relocating from Germany to the Netherlands, and also switching jobs. Between the end of my current contract and the start of my new one, there is a 1 month gap (January), where I would be technically unemployed.
When a job contract ends in Germany, in order to keep your "public" health insurance you have to either register as an unemployed, or pay for your health insurance out of your pocket.
I would like to have an active health insurance during the month of January, and I am wondering if I can do this without having to pay it directly.
Question: Would it be possible to register as unemployed just for that month, so to keep my health insurance?
