Income protection insurance policy

Unemployment is a huge blow for your personal income. However, joining Finansförbundet automatically gives you access to income protection insurance. For middle and high income earners this makes all the difference, as it covers a monthly salary of up to 80 000 kronor for a maximum of 120 working days.

With income protection you can receive 80 percent of your actual salary, instead of 80 percent of just 25 025 kronor; which is standard compensation from a-kassan. 

In order to receive this income protection insurance policy you need to:   

  • have been a current member of Finansförbundet for at least the last 12 months*  
  • be entitled to compensation from a-kassan (The Unemployment Insurance Fund).

* If you are covered by a similar income protection insurance policy from another organisation you may be credited for your qualifying period.  

You have the option to prolong the compensation period by another 180 days, giving you a total of 300 days. For high income earners we offer an extra income protection policy covering a salary of up to 120 000 kronor.
