About cookies

On 1st July 2011, changes were made to the Law on Electronic Communications (2003:389). This means that when you visit a website, you may need to explicitly agree to the website's use of cookies.

Some cookies are necessary for alfakassan.se to operate effectively and these have already been saved temporarily onto your computer. They will, however, be deleted as soon as you close your web browser. Cookies are also used on Alfa-kassan's website to ensure that visitors receive a better user-experience.

Extra work

Extra work can, in some cases, be approved as a spare-time job and should have been undertaken for at least 12 months before you became unemployed, and at the same time as you were working in a full-time job.

The average income from this extra work may not exceed the equivalent of six times the amount of benefit from the basic insurance (six grundersättning - see earlier, under Terms and Conditions) per week. The value of the basic benefit is currently 365 kronor per day.

If you have been performing extra work, you should inform Alfa-kassan at the same time that you apply to us for unemployment benefit. Alfa-kassan will then examine your extra work and decide whether it can be considered to be an approved spare-time job, and you will then receive written confirmation of this decision.

You can continue to perform an approved spare-time job whilst receiving unemployment benefit, and the hours spent do not need to be declared on your benefit card (tidrapport). If you, on the other hand, increase the number of hours you spend in this extra work, it will cease to be recognised as a spare-time job. In this case, you should notify Alfa-kassan that you have extended the working hours of your spare-time job, and you should declare all the time worked on your benefit card.

If you increase the income gained from your spare-time job, please contact us for more information regarding how you should declare your spare-time job on the benefit card.
