We’ve got your back in the good times and the bad times. With us you will have good opportunities to influence and develop throughout your working life.
A membership in Finansförbundet will keep you safe. To be fully protected in case of unemployment, you also need to join the Unemployment Insurance Fund ("a-kassan").
Five reasons to join Finansförbundet
Finansförbundet is a trade union that is close to you on your workplace. All professions are welcome to join us which gives us good insight and understanding of the sector. There is always someone you can turn to with your questions.
With strong collective agreements we develop both individual and common interests. Thanks to carefully performed union work, we have collective agreements that generate tens of thousands SEK or more in our members’ wallets every year.
The more members we are in Finansförbundet, the more strength we have in negotiations with the employer.
As a member with us, you can get personal advice and negotiation help. You get advice, counselling and support from the labour law specialists at Finansförbundet. We for example provide help on cases with SwedSec licenses. Note that most services require membership for three months.
As a member you get access to industry-specific salary statistics where you for example can compare different professions. The statistics can only be found with Finansförbundet and is updated every year.
As a member of Finansförbundet you are covered by an income protection insurance in case you get unemployed. The income protection insurance applies in case you become unemployed and earn more than the ceiling in the unemployment insurance fund (“a-kassan”). Through the income protection insurance, you will keep up to 80 percent of your previous salary for a period of 120 working days. The income insurance is valid up to 80,000 SEK per month. You can also add an additional insurance for a salary up to SEK 120,000.
In addition to this, you get a lot of benefits through your membership. As a member you will for example have the possibility to take out affordable insurances.
Join a-kassan separately
Please note that you are not automatically joining the unemployment insurance fund (a-kassan) when joining Finansförbundet. You need to become a member of a-kassan separately.
