The fee to Akademikernas a-kassa is 140 SEK from October 2020. The fee is adjusted because of more generous benefits during covid19. The first invoice with the new fee will be sent in the end of October.

Adjusted fee because of more generous allowance

The reason why we needed to adjust the fee is higher costs when the daily allowance was increased from SEK 910 to SEK 1,200 in March to mitigate the economic consequences of the corona pandemic for individuals and society. The benefits from a-kassan are financed be membership fees and employer contributions. And when 75 percent of our unemployed members get higher daily allowances our a-kassa need to contribute more to the government cost.

The benefit of being a member of the union too

The unemployment insurance fund provides basic security in the event of unemployment. With us, you can continue to be a member if you change jobs, careers or even if you go from being an employee to an entrepreneur.

Joining the union can be good if you want an income insurance that complements the unemployment insurance fund, and the union can also help with everything from labour law to LinkedIn review.
