Can I retain my sickness compensation if I move abroad?

Sjukersättning utomlands (original headline)
If I have sjukersättning and move to Germany or England do I get to keep my sjukersättning?


  • Hello Anna,
    thank you for your post.
    Yes, the part that is income related is paid out regardless of which country you live in. Guarantee benefit, on the other hand, will only follow you to an EU/EEA country, Switzerland or Canada. Contact Försäkringskassan for more information about when you are entitled to have guarantee benefit follow you to another country.
    Keep in mind, if you move abroad permanently, you must report this to Försäkringskassan.
