How long does the Child Allowance payout take?

I have applied for Child allowance by sending the relevant documents in first week of July. I have not heard back yet. How long does it take for a decision to be made in child allowance cases.
I hold a residence permit. We have 2 kids. Elder is 7 years and the younger is 10 months old. All of us (myself, my wife and both kids) have personal numbers.

  • Hello!

    Thank you for your question!

    In order to receive child allowance, you and your family should be registered at Försäkringskassan. If you have sent the documents, we will process your registration case first in order to see if you are covered by the social insurance in Sweden and have right to social benefits such as child allowance. Once your registration case is processed the case officer will see that you have children and will send a message to the child allowance department to start the case automatically.

    Unfortunately the processing time for registration cases are very long at the moment. We do not have specific processing time when it comes to registration but it can take several months.

    Please remember that the Swedish Social Insurance Agency has limited abilities to answer questions relating to individual cases on this forum. We therefore ask you to contact our customer center if you have questions relating to your specific case by calling telephone number 0771 524524 and press 8 to get connected to the English line.

    Our telephone lines are open the following hours:

    Monday – Friday 8.00am — 4.00 pm,

    Best regards,
    Hazan Administrative officer
