Parental Leave

I have a question regarding parental leave.
From what I understood, I stay at home from my work and look after my child one year and half without taking any benefits from Försäkringskassa and then I can take those days which I’m aloud with payments.

so, totally I can stay with my child 1,5 year plus those days which I have from Försäkringskassa.

Is it correct

Thanks you,


  • Hello!

    Thank you for your post.

    Parental benefit is money you receive to be able to be at home with your child instead of working. You can apply the days you are eligible for, however you have planned to take them.

    You can read more here, about parental benefit and the different rules we have on that subject. However, in this forum we cannot answer to specific cases. Kindly contact our customer service for more information. You can reach us by dialing 0771 524 524 and press 8 to get connected to the English line.
