Advice about being sjukskriven

Good morning.

I am current sjukskriven from 5 December, but I only registered this through Mina Sidor yesterday (11 December). Is there any way I can change this in Mina Sidor?

Are the first 14 days, which are paid by my company, all week days, or does this include weekends too?
I would like to find out from what date I can apply to Försäkringskassan for my sickness benefit.



  • Hello,

    You cannot change the notification date but there is a possibility to apply for sickness benefit 7 days before the notification date. You should write the date in the application which you need to apply for the sickness benefit.

    The first day you are sick, you must report your sickness to your employer. Once you have been sick for 14 days including Saturdays and Sundays, your employer will report your sickness to Försäkringskassan.
    You can check whether your employer has submitted a sickness report via my pages (Mina sidor).
    If you are employed with sick pay, the first 14 days you are sick, your employer pays you the sick pay instead of your regular salary. After that, you can apply for sickness benefit from Försäkringskassan from the 15th day of the sick period. Some employers do not pay sick pay. If this is your case, you can apply sickness benefit from the first day of your sickness.You can get for information here
