Folksam – Health insurance
From 1 January 2023, health insurance from Folksam will be included in your membership of SULF. The insurance, which covers all working members, is free of charge and you don’t have to do anything to add the cover.
The health insurance gives you greater financial security in the event of incapacity for work, as it provides compensation for lost income in the event of long-term sick leave. It supplements the compensation you are entitled to receive from the Swedish Social Insurance Agency (Försäkringskassan).
Folksam – Legal insurance
Life gives rise to more legal issues than you might imagine. Living together, marriage, children, divorce and drawing up a will: what exactly do you need to do?
With legal insurance from Folksam, you have access to experienced lawyers from Familjens Jurist. You will be entitled to 15 hours of legal advice a year, as well as help with writing legal documents. Feel confident that you have done things correctly when it matters the most.
The policy covers four areas:
- legal advice concerning family law,
- legal protection,
- peace-of-mind advice
- and assistance in the event of identity theft.
As a member of SULF, you can sign up for legal insurance with Folksam for only SEK 45 per month. Read more and sign up for our legal insurance.
