sick day (karensdag) and sgi

My salary has increased since April 2020. Now when I applied for "Ersättning för karens", it does not ask me my salary. in "my page" I see my old salary and I do not know where can I modify it.
please help me since I should apply for pregnancy benefit soon as well


  • Hello!

    Thank you for your post.

    You do not need to inform Försäkringskassan about your income when you are applying for the sick pay.
    If you are employed, your reimbursement will be 700 Kronor before taxes. If you are self-employed you will receive 804 Krone before taxes for each day you are ill during the qualifying period.

    However, when you apply for the pregnancy benefit, you will need to provide accurate information about your annual income and employer information. Then we will calculate your new SGI (sickness benefit qualifying income).

    Best Regards
    Helen Administrative officer
