Advantages of joining a-kassa
Joining an a-kassa gives you financial security if you should become unemployed. When you have been with an a-kassa for twelve months and fulfil the conditions for benefit, you are eligible to apply for income-related benefit, which is based on previous salary. Income-related benefit means that you can receive up to 80 per cent of your former salary, up to a maximum of 910 kronor per day. If you do not fulfil the requirements for income-related benefit but fulfil the requirements for benefit, you are eligible to apply for basic benefit.
