Our Most Popular Benefits

As a member of Akavia, you have access to over 30 membership benefits, including:

  • Protect Your Income with Income Insurance

    If you lose your job, Akavia’s income insurance can compensate you so that you get 80 per cent of your salary up to a maximum of 100,000 kronor per month for 120 working days, (equivalent to about six months). This allows you to focus on other things than worrying about your finances if you should become unemployed.

  • Get Support from Experts When You Need It

    From your first day as a member, you have access to individual support from experts on labour law and help with reviewing the terms of your employment contract.

  • Take the Next Step in Your Career

    Receive personal guidance and advice from an expert to help you advance in your career. Get inspiration through our events and webinars and make connections through our mentorship programme.

  • The Right Salary for You

    Use Sweden's largest database of salary statistics for university-educated professionals to find the relevant salary levels in your industry. We are here to assist and guide you – whether you want to know the factors that determine your starting salary or you need strong arguments to help you in your salary negotiation.
