  • Hi Rana,

    If you are receiving a study grant for a doctoral position, the general rule is that you are considered as a resident of Sweden, and therefore eligible for Swedish Social Insurance and benefits like parental leave and child allowance. This rule applies also for the accompanying family members of the doctoral student.

    Best regards,

  • Thank you. I am salaried PhD student (instead of study grant), so does I am eligible ?

  • Hi Rana,

    You can always send us the application to register with Försäkringskassan, please fill in the form "5456 Registration Information" which you can find in our website and send it to us so a case officer can make an assessment in your particular case. You should have a Swedish personal number or coordination number. It is important that you request a benefit while you fill out the form.

    Please send a copy of your employment contract as well and a copy of residence permit, work permit or right of Residence.

    Best regards,

  • Hi, if I am an European citizen what kind of document should I send as a residence permit? A copy of my passport will be fine?

    Thanks

  • Hello,

    In normal circumstances, we do not consider scholarship to be a form of salary. The only exception is with some Marie Curie-grants, which can be treated as salaries.

    You can always send us the application to register with Försäkringskassan, please fill in the form "5456 Registration Information" which you can find in our website and send it to us so a case officer can make an assessment in your particular case. You should have a Swedish personal number or coordination number. It is important that you request a benefit while you fill out the form (in the other information field).

    At the end of the form, you can find what type of additional documents, you might need to send to Försäkringskassan.

    Best regards,
