Payment of salary

Your salary is normally paid out on the 25th every month. You are responsible for providing your account details to the paying bank, which is Nordea.

Individual salaries along with fixed and variable salary supplements are paid out per calendar month. You receive your salary at the earliest on the 25th of each month, with certain exceptions:

  • When the 25th falls on a Saturday, the payment is made on the 24th
  • When Midsummer Eve falls on the 23rd, 24th or 25th, the payment in June is made on the day before Midsummer Eve
  • In December, the payment is made on the 21st at the earliest.

Information to the paying bank

The paying bank is Nordea. If you are a Nordea client, your salary is automatically paid into your personal account. If you have mobile bank ID, you can register a different bank account via Nordea’s website Select the tab: Våra tjänster/Konton och betalningar/Personkonto/Anmäl ditt konto för lön, pension eller annan ersättning (Our services/Accounts and payments/Personal Account/Register your account for salary, pension or other payments). Then log in with your mobile bank ID and follow the instructions (available in English as of ”Register your account”). Lund University’s employer number with Nordea is 85641.

If you have a bank account or right to a pension abroad, you must send an international form to Nordea.

Supplements or deductions

Your manager decides whether salary supplements are to be paid out with your first salary or after the calendar month to which the supplements refer. The same applies to salary deductions.

If the salary deduction cannot be made according to the relevant decision, the employee is responsible for paying in an amount corresponding to the salary deduction in the time and manner determined by the employer.
