Our Most Used Benefits

As a member, you get access to over 30 membership benefits, including:

    Akavia's income insurance can give you 80 percent of your salary up to 100,000 SEK per month for 120 working days (equivalent to six months) if you are dismissed from your employment. This allows you to focus on what you want instead of worrying about your finances.
  • Get Support from Experts When You Need It

    From your first day as a member, you have access to personal support from experts in labour law issues and help to review the terms of your employment contract.
  • Take the Next Step in Your Career

    Receive personal guidance and advice from an expert to advance in your career. Get inspired by events and webinars and make connections through our mentor program.
  • Get the Right Salary for You

    Use Sweden's largest database of salary statistics for academics and find your market salary. We are here to guide the way – whether you want to know the factors that affect your starting salary or gather well-founded arguments for your salary negotiation.

An application in English is coming soon, but for now, continue in Swedish and translate the website via your browser. You can also become a member by contacting our membership support.
