From April 2017, Stockholm University is switching banks and will be using Danske Bank to handle salary payments. The reason for the switch is that the Swedish National Debt Office has contracted a new bank, which will be Danske Bank. This means that all salary payments will be made from Danske Bank to each employee's bank account.

All employees must register their bank details with Danske Bank in order to receive salary payments to their regular bank account. Due to banking secrecy, Nordea cannot notify Danske Bank which bank account you currently receive your salary on.

In March, all employees will receive an e-mail with instructions on how to record their banking details at Danske Bank. Everyone will receive a link to Danske Bank's website where they submit their bank account by using e-ID (e-legitimation) or BankID.

Recording bank details will not automatically make employees’ a Danske Bank client – it has to be done so that salary payments can be made directly to the employees’ personal bank account, as per usual.

If Danske Bank does not receive banking details, the salary will be paid out as a pay order instead. When recording bank details, it is also appropriate that everyone verifies the address information in Primula.

Early March, we will leave specific information on exactly how to proceed. If you don’t have an e-ID or BankID, you will need to acquire it as soon as possible.
