The Unemployment Insurance Fund (a-kassan) is paramount to your economy should you ever find yourself in a situation of unemployment. A-kassan provides you with financial support to cover your basic needs, and is the prerequisite for the enjoyment of Finansförbundet's income protection insurance policy. We strongly recommend you to join as soon as possible.

In order to benefit from a-kassan you need to meet these criteria:

  • you have been a member of a-kassan during at least 12 months
  • you are registered with the Swedish Public Employment Service, Arbetsförmedlingen. (Register your first day of unemployment.)

The highest rate per day is 910 kronor before taxes. After that the highest rate per day is SEK 760. You are eligible for a-kassan for 300 days, thereafter you need to apply for a prolongation. Find out more on a-kassan's webpage below.
