Long term sick leave and vacation

Hi! I've been working at the same place for 10 years and I am currently only working 50%, due to a chronic illness. I also have vacation days for this year I'd like to use soon. How does this work with the sick leave? Who do I have to inform? From what I seem to understand on the Swedish FK customer forum, you collect both. Is this correct? Thank you in advance!

  • Hello Lauren,

    Yes, this is correct. You can take out vacation days while receiving sickness benefit. You do not need to inform Försäkringskassan as long as you are having your vacation in Sweden.

    If you will be traveling within the EU/EEA or to Switzerland, you do not need to send an application to continue receiving your sickness benefit during your travel. However, if you are traveling to a country outside the EU/EEA or Switzerland, you must send application to continue receiving your sickness benefit during your stay abroad before you leave. Apply on My pages (Mina sidor) or using form FK 7430.

    Best regards,
    Özge
