Income insurance

Our complementary income insurance is included in your membership in Naturvetarna, the Swedish Association of Professional Scientists. It supplements the unemployment insurance fund (a-kassa) in the event of temporary unemployment.

The income insurance is included in the membership fee to Naturvetarna. Compensation can be given up to a maximum of 80 percent of your previous income for a 150 day-period.


Qualifications for income insurance

In order to benefit from the income insurance you need to:

  • Have been a member of Naturvetarna and the unemployment insurance fund Akademikernas a-kassa for at least 12 months prior to unemployment. Membership of Akademikernas a-kassa is not included in your membership of Naturvetarna, and application must be made separately.
  • Qualify for the unemployment insurance fund from Akademikernas a-kassa (AEA). In order to qualify for unemployment benefits you need to be available on the Swedish job market. If you do not have a general work permit this means that you may not qualify for the income insurance from Naturvetarna. You need to clarify this with Akademikernas a-kassa.
