Membership fees and how to pay them

Your membership fee may be paid monthly via direct debit, e-invoice or by payment slip quarterly or annually. 

If all the members of the Swedish Association of Graduate Engineers paid their membership fees electronically, this would make a big difference to the environment. The fact that it is also convenient for both you and us makes this a simple equation. So please choose an electronic payment option.

Pay by direct debit

Membership fees are deducted monthly from your bank account automatically.

Arrange a direct debit as follows:

  • Direct debit via your Internet bank – log in to your Internet bank and request a direct debit 
  • Direct debit via a form – fill in the form and send it to us. 
  • Direct debit via www.sverigesingenjorer.se – log in to your page and select autogiro (direct debit) as payment method. 

For retired members and students who are not members of the Akademikernas a-kassa, annual payment is applied irrespective of method of payment. 

Our bank giro number fodirect debit is 630-0024. 

Pay by invoice or e-invoice

Membership fees are invoiced quarterly for working members in January, April, July and October and once per academic year for students.
