A membership in Finansförbundet will keep you safe. To be fully protected in case of unemployment, you need to join The Unemployment Insurance Funsd (a-kassan), as well.
Why you should join Finansförbundet
The more members we are, 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, counseling and support by the labour law specialists at Finansförbundet. For example we provide help on cases with SwedSec licenses. Most services require membership for three months.
You also get access to industry-specific salary statistics every year.
The membership includes an income insurance with free supplements for the first three months in Bliwa. It covers in case you become unemployed and earn more than the ceiling in the unemployment insurance fund. You can still receive up to 80 percent compensation for 120 working days.
In addition to this, you get a lot of benefits through your membership. Some insurances are included free of charge for three months, such as accident insurance, event insurance and life insurance in Trygg Hansa, while others can be taken out as a supplement with a group discount on the premium.
Apply at a-kassan separetely
Please note that you are not automatically joining the unemployment insurance fund (a-kassan) when joining Finansförbundet. You need to apply at a-kassan separately.
