Need Help and Clarification... Please

Hello there,
I am not sure how parental leave and sick leave to take care of a sick child leave (VAB) works.
These are my questions:
1. Does the employer pay the employee on parental leave and VAB days or Försakringskassan?
2. Claims are made online though Försakringskassan's minasidor and an amount is paid. Does the employer have to pay the difference (days salary - allowance given by Försakringskassan)
Please help.Thank you.


  • Hello,

    Thank you for your questions!

    The compensation you receive when caring for a sick child (vab ) and parental benefit are paid by Försäkringskassan. You can find more information about the benefits on the webpage.

    You should contact your employer to know if they will be paying you the difference. There is no general rule and it depends on your contract.

    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 for further questions. Our telephone number is 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
