Unable to Start work, No Förskola Place in 4 months

Me and my wife need to start working full time 40tim/vecka from 7th Jan. I was on a year Föräldraledig for our 4 year old son so we left his previous förskola place last January. Then I applied for his place on 9th September but we haven't got any place yet (its 5th Jan) ... So it seems like one of us stay home with kid until he gets a place in förskola. So one parent will not earn. What are the rules for compensation NOW when we have already paid for all 480 days for the kid. ?


  • Hello,

    Thank you for your post!

    In Sweden, per child parents are entitled for a total of 480 paid parental benefit days. Unfortunately, there are not additional parental days for the parents.

    Försäkringskassan is not responsible for förskola in Sweden. Please contact your local authority (kommun) about this since they are the ones who manage this area.

    Since this forum is only for general English questions so we cannot reply your questions here. Please contact the customer center (+46 771 524 524) in Swedish to get reply to your questions.

    Best regards,
