How to connect two parents via to-be-born baby in the system?


My wife has sent out a pregnancy certificate and been successfully registered on Försäkringskassan. My wife and I plan to share the total 480 days of parental leave benefits, but I have no idea how to associate my application to my wife, such that the shared benefits can be seen from the website.

The baby is to be born, and it seems that no information about the baby (only with a temporarily personal number, i.e., YYMMDD-0000) can be used to make my wife and me connected. So how can I do to make it?

Thank you very much!



  • Hello,

    Thank you for your post. The pregnancy certificate will act as notification of your parental benefit in our system but not as the application.

    Since it is a public forum, it is difficult for us to answer to questions regarding specific cases. We therefore recommend that you call our Customer Service 0771 524 524 and press 8 to get connected to the English line. More information about how you can apply for parental benefit is available here in English.

    Our telephone lines are open the following hours:

    Monday – Friday 8.00am — 4.00 pm,
    Best regards
    Helen Administrative officer
