Can two parents use double days on different levels?

double days / dual leave (Original title)


Do the double days need to be taken at the minimum level (as opposed to sickness benefit level)?

Also, is it possible for both parents to be off at the same time taking parental benefit for one child each?



  • Hello,

    Thank you for your post! You can take the double days in both the sickness benefit level as well as minimum (lowest) level. It is also possible for the two parents to take parental leave for one child each.

  • Hej,

    I am not sure if I understand right. We have three children. Is it possible that I take 30 days for our first child at the same time that my wife is on parental leave for our third child?
  • Hello Arnd,
    thank you for your post.
    Up until your child turns 1 year, you and your partner have 30 so called double days, which means that if you want to be on parental leave at the same time, you can apply for double days if the child that has not turn 1 year yet. That way you can save the parental leave days for your other children.
    You can read more about parental leave on our website.

  • Thank you!

    Are the 10 dagar after birth part of the 30 days?
  • Hello again.

    No, the 10 days in connection to the child's birth is not included in the double Days.
