Do I need to inform Försäkringskassan if my work permit has been renewed?

Do we need to register again after getting a renewed work permit (Original title)

We had applied for renewal of our work permits (first extension) and we have finally got the new decision today. Our previous work permits had exoired in June 2016.We are already registered with försäkringskassan since 2014, but I was wondering if we need to send our renewed work permit proof/decision letter to försäkringskassan again or not?

The reason is that my wife is pregnant and expected to give birth in the next few weeks. So, we want to ensure that our parental benefits kick in on time and we don't want to face a situation where we missed informing you and therefore face a delay.

FYI, we have already sent her pregnancy certificate to Försäkringskassan and it has been registered in the system along with her SGI.


  • Hi Shitij!

    If your payments stopped (for example child allowance) because of the expired residence or work permit then please send the renewed work permit to Försäkringskassan.

    Otherwise, if you did not have any compensations from FK, you don’t need to provide us with the new decision from Migrationsverket if you are already registered.

    Best regards,
