Are parental benefits dependent on visa type?
Hi, I have been working in Sweden for more than two years and I am about to take my maternity leave in a few months.
For the past two years I was working on a dependent visa ( since my husband is working here).
Recently I have applied for a work permit (since I heard that the processiong time for the first work permit is faster).
Since I have been working here and paying taxes for 2 years can I get the parental benefits based on 80% of my salary ?
Does it matter if you were working on a dependent visa or your own work permit?
I believe the requirement is to work for 240 days before the estimated child birth to get 80% of basic salary. Isn't that right?
Kindly confirm since I do not want to miss out on my parental benefits due to change in my visa status.
