Blue collar worker – the following applies to you
When you are working for a company that has a collective agreement, you will have a pension and insurance through your work. This means that you have extra money paid into your pension – known as occupational pension. You also have a number of insurances that provide you with additional security in the case of various events in your life.

We provide you with collated information about your pension and insurance through work. For example, you can find out how to view your occupational pension and how to apply for compensation in the event you should suffer an accident or be on sick leave.
The insurances work slightly differently depending on whether you are a blue collar worker or a white collar worker. If you work in a shop, warehouse, hotel or restaurant, or in industry, construction or installation, for example, you will normally be a blue collar worker. Your occupational pension is a collective pension called Avtalspension SAF-LO, and you will receive a pension statement from the Swedish insurance company Fora every year.
If you are unsure as to whether you are a blue collar worker or a white collar worker, ask your employer or trade union.
