The basic benefit

The basic benefit is available to those who are not members of an unemployment insurance fund, or those who have not been members for 12 months. The basic level of unemployment benefit is determined by the number of hours worked in previous employment. The basic unemployment benefit can be claimed from, and including on, your 20th birthday.

  • The basic benefit is a maximum of SEK 510.

If you are not a member of Alfa-kassan and receive the basic benefit from us, payment will be subject to an administrative fee of SEK 7 per day claimed.
