Join Lärarnas a-kassa
You should join an a-kassa as soon as you start working. Each month takes you closer to a full year and provides yourself and your family with financial security even if the unexpected does happen and you are left with no income.
This is what you get
- Up to 1200 kronor per day, when you are unemployed.
- A personal contact when applying for compensation.
- Compensation from Lärarförbundet’s income insurance, when also a member in Lärarförbundet.
The membership fee is 130 kronor per month.
Reasons to join Lärarnas a-kassa
Security through insured income
By becoming a member of the unemployment benefit fund, you improve your financial security. As a member, you can receive up to 80% compensation on a salary of 33,000 kronor per month. This gives you 1200 kronor per day, compared to a maximum of 510 per day for non-members.
Lärarförbundet’s income insurance
If you’re a member of both our fund and Lärarförbundet (Swedish Teachers’ Union), your income is further insured for up to 80% of your total salary. But the income insurance requires membership in the unemployment fund.
Great value for money
If you’ve been a member throughout your professional life and receive the maximum compensation per day, it only takes three months’ worth of unemployment benefits at any point during your career for you to get a payback on the membership fees. We are a not-for-profit business, but a politically independent member organisation. That’s why the fee is low – only 110 kronor a month.
We are Sweden’s largest unemployment benefits fund for teachers and educators. We specialise in teachers’ working conditions and help make overall improvements to the unemployment insurance fund with the best interests of educational professionals in mind. Through Sweden’s unemployment insurance funds, we also work to simplify these conditions.
Expertise and understanding
We do everything in our power to make sure our members receive compensation as quickly as possible for their own unique situation. With us, you get a personal advisor who provides feedback and helps you find your way in the regulatory jungle. We always strive to achieve a quick, smooth process for you. In fact, our members give us consistently high ratings in member surveys.
Money from public welfare
Your employer pays an employer’s contribution on your salary that goes towards helping people who are not employed. As one of our members, you can receive some of that money if you become unemployed.
