About Lärarnas a-kassa

Lärarnas a-kassa is not an unemployment insurance fund for everyone, it’s an unemployment insurance fund for those working in education. We specialise in teachers and schools, which means that we have the knowledge and experience necessary to give you as member the best help and support possible.

An unemployment insurance fund for you working with education

If you work as a teacher, guidance counsellor, principal or with education you are welcome to join Lärarnas a-kassa. You are also eligible to join if you study to become a teacher, are self employed in a company operating in the field of education or if you are a church musician.

The membership fee is 140 kronor per month

Being a member of Lärarnas a-kassa costs 140 kronor per month. The fee is the same for all our members, regardless of income, if you are a student or if you are on parental leave. Our membership fee is low compared to other unemployment insurance funds in Sweden.

You are also eligible for a tax reduction on the fee, which effectively means that you only pay just a little bit more than 100 kronor per month.


You can pay the fee with autogiro, e-invoice or regular invoice. If you have chosen to receive a regular invoice but have a digital mail inbox you will receive your invoice in Kivra.

Switch to us

We can help you with the transfer so that the duration of membership from your former unemployment fund is accounted for when switching to us. Continue to pay you membership fee from your old a-kassa until the transfer is completed.

More money with the union’s extra income insurance

If you are a member of the union, for example Sveriges Lärare or Sveriges Skolledare, you can get an extra compensation per month. With the extra income insurance, you can get a compensation of 80 percent of your former income up to 100 000 kronor per month.

How we handle you personal data

At Lärarnas a-kassa we want you to feel safe with how we handle your personal data. Generally we handle you personal data as a part of our exercise of public authority, for example when we sen you your compensation. If you are not a member, we might handle your personal data when you get in contact with us.
