If you, as an employee at KTH, are due for service abroad, a URA contract will be signed and possibly for your accompanying family.
If stationed abroad, you are by the Swedish state considered being a resident in Sweden, which means that you keep your parental and child allowance.
Children stationed abroad must be less than 19 years old.
If you are due for service abroad for more than six months (it can also be actual for a shorter period depending on the commission), a URA contract is drawn for you and possibly your accompanying family.
The contract states which terms shall apply during the total foreign stay, for instance terms for refunding of travel expenses.
In connection with writing of the contract, a URA insurance is drawn for you and possibly your accompanying family.

You can also sign a complementary property protection insurance by making a request to the HR department and they make a request for the insurance from The Legal, Financial and Administrative Services Agency (Kammarkollegiet), see contact info below. It costs 1 SEK/day/adult in compensation for every even 50 000 SEK. The property protection insurance is a private cost and is therefore a taxable benefit.
