Summary on Swedish unemployment insurance funds

Here you can read about the unemployment insurance funds in Sweden you can become a member of and how they are structured.

Unemployment insurance funds in Sweden

Unemployment insurance funds (a-kasser) are organisations that manage unemployment benefits for their members. If you would like to become a member of an unemployment insurance fund, it must be an unemployment insurance fund in your country of employment. Unemployment insurance funds include certain business areas or industries and may have a connection to trade organisations. However, membership in an unemployment fund does not necessarily entail membership in a trade association or trade union.


A Swedish unemployment insurance fund administers the payment of unemployment benefits (arbetslöshetsersättning) for the unemployed. It is a kind of insurance against unemployment that you draw when you become a member of an unemployment insurance fund. The benefit is calculated on the basis of the unemployed person’s former income, but cannot exceed 80% of their salary, max 910 SEK per day.


Unemployment insurance funds vary in subscription and cost between 100 SEK/month - 200 SEK/month (2019). Check with the individual unemployment insurance fund. Every a-kassa has a designated EU-case worker whom you can contact.
