You can become a member regardless of the type of company you operate, as long as you only employ family members, have no more than four major owners and primarily perform white collar services. If you are already a member of Unionen, you keep all your benefits, including your qualifying period for income protection insurance.

Unionen Egenföretagare offer access to various services created just for you as an entrepreneur. A vast majority of self-employed people prefer to be their own boss, but sometimes yearn for someone to discuss ideas and decisions with. As a member you can get support and counselling in your everyday business.
