Social insurance registeration

I have applied for social insurance in the beginning of the April month till today I didn't got any decision over it.

Can I apply for VAB or sickness benefits before social insurance?

Also , may I know how many months does it take for decision to take.


  • Hello,

    Thank you for your question.

    Unfortunately the processing time for registration cases are very long at the moment. We do not have specific / fixed processing time when it comes to registration but it can take up to 10 months. However, it depends very much on what kind of benefit/compensation you need from Försäkringskassan.

    In cases when you have made an application for benefits such as sickness benefit or for taking care of your sick child, we might try to speed up your registration as much as possible so that you do not have to wait so long. In order to ask for prioritization, you need then to call our customer center once you have submitted the application for the actual benefit. The telephone number is 0771-524524. Please, press 8 to get connected to the English line.

    Our telephone lines are open the following hours:

    Monday – Friday 8.00am — 4.00 pm,

    Best regards,
