Moved with family October 2018, registered with Forsakringskassan on February, still no decision


I got a job in Sweden from 1st of November 2018 and moved to Sweden on 19.10.24 from Denmark where I am a citizen. Our movement at Skatteverket was finalized before Christmas but still the actual move in date was registered as 18.10.24. We have a son and we used to get Child allowance from Denmark but now Udbetaling Danmark has asked us to pay back his allowance from 1st of November 2018 saying that you should be covered by Sweden from that date. We registered at the Forsakringskassan with BankID 19.02.01 but there is still no answer on our application. Could you please tell me:

1. How long does it approximately take right now for the application on registration to be processed?

2. When we get registered, given the circumstances that I was employed in Sweden from 18.11.01, do we get the child allowance for the months before (from November last year)? Isn't it so that one is eligible to receive child allowance if they have residence and employment in Sweden?



  • Hello!

    Thank you for your post. At the moment the processing time for registration cases are very long. Generally it can take up to 10 months. However, it also depends very much on what kind of compensation you are applying from Försäkringskassan.

    Regarding your question about the child allowance it generally starts from the month after the child is resident in Sweden. But it depends on different other factors. In this forum we reply only to general English questions. Please contact the customer center if you need more detailed information about your specific questions
