AFA Insurance in brief

AFA Insurance is an organisation owned by Sweden's labour market parties. We insure employees within the private sector, municipalities and county councils. Today more than four million people are covered by at least one of our insurances.

Collective agreement

Our insurance plans are based on collective agreements between Sweden's labour market parties. AFA Insurance provide financial support in the event of incapacity for work due to sickness, work injury, shortage of work, death and parental leave. In addition to our core insurance activities, we manage knowledge and resources, and work to prevent ill-health in the workplace. In this way, collectively agreed insurance lays the foundations for a better working life, with greater security for all.

Business areas

  • Insure: Administration of collectively agreed insurance cover within working life.
  • Manage: Management of knowledge and assets from insurance activities.
  • Prevent: Preventive measures and research grants for improving health in working life.

Everything is interconnected

Our day-to-day work at AFA Insurance is all about creating better conditions for people in their working lives. We administer good insurance cover, manage the knowledge from our collectively agreed insurances and our assets with a long-term perspective, and work in a preventive capacity to promote a better working environment and better health. It is the way in which we bring these three business areas together which gives our work its unique strength, providing insurance for a better working life.
