What are the requirements to receive 80% of my salary when I use parental benefits?

Parental Benefits- exact requirements to receive the 80 percent employed!? (Original title)


Hello,
I read that when I am employed and worked 240 days I can get 80 percent of my previous salary.

  1. Do I have to be employed full time or a minimum number of hours per week?
  2. Do I have to be with the same one employer for the 240 days or can it be that for example I worked 3 months for one employer and 5 months for another employer with being a few weeks unemployed in between the two jobs?
  3. Is the minimum days 240 days to receive the 80 percent as somewhere I heard 6 months is sufficient

Thank you
Nati

  • Hello Nati!

    1. You do not have to be employed full time. To receive parental benefit at sickness benefit level, you must have had an annual income of at least SEK 82,100 for at least 240 consecutive days before the estimated delivery date.

    2. You do not need to have worked at the same workplace or had the same income the entire time, but rather it is the number of days with income that is important.

    3. In order to be eligible to receive the first 180 days at sickness benefit level that are taken out for the child, you must have had an annual income of at least SEK 82,100 for at least 240 consecutive days before the estimated delivery date.

    The 6 months rule applies to sickness benefit qualifying income (SGI). Your income is considered part of your sickness benefit qualifying income (SGI) if:

    • you will be receiving it for at least the next six months, or
    • it recurs annually.

    You can find more information about how Parental leave compensation is counted under “If you have or have had an income” here and what is sickness benefit qualifying income here. Scroll down to “Frequently asked questions” and click on “What is sickness benefit qualifying income?".
