Parental Benefits

Hi All,

Currently I am working in India and will be relocating to Sweden in November month. Intially my work permit(me along with my wife) is for 1 year and it later it will be renewed.
My wife is pregnant and my family wants her delivery in india itself. Can you please help me if i am entitled for parental leaves(how many) and parental benefits ?
Thanks for the help in advance.

  • Hi,

    Thank you for your post. Försäkringskassan needs to process a registration case to see if you will be covered by the social insurance in Sweden and have right to parental benefit or child allowance. You can find the registration form here.

    Your wife and your child can start the registration process once after they move to Sweden and receive a personal number from Swedish Tax Agency (Skattverket).
    You are not entitled to parental benefits before your child is registered at Försäkringskassan.

    In these previous posts, here and here, you can read more about parental benefit and child allowance when you move from a non EU-country.

    Best regards,
