Parental Benefits

Dear Team,
I have a kid who is going to preschool now(3 years old). We have received 480 days of parental leave and my wife utilized all her leaves and I have transferred 150 days from my account and she has utilized them as well. Now I have 90 (Sickness level) days left with me. Can I know whether I can apply parental allowance on the weekends while I am working ? or I shouldn't work while applying for the parental allowance?



  • Hello,

    Thank you for your post!

    If you are employed and working 5 days a week from Monday to Friday and would like to apply for parental benefits for the weekend for days on S-level based on your income, then you would also have to apply for the day right before or right after the weekend to the same extent. That means applying for 100% for Friday-Sunday or 50% Saturday- Monday. It is not possible to apply 50% for Friday and the 100% Saturday and Sunday. All 3 days need to have the same extent (%).

    You can take parental leave for the same child during the weekend (Saturday, Sunday) only if you are receiving Sjukpenningnivå days (s-day) on a basic level (250kr per day before tax).

    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 so that we can check your case. More information about how you can apply for parental benefit is available here in English.

    Best regards,
