Can one parent take VAB whilst the other parent has pregnancy benefit?

VAB when the other parent takes pregnancy leave (Original title)

Hi, is it possible for the wife to take pregnant leave (due to back pain) and the husband take VAB for the same day?


  • Hi;

    One parent can take out VAB if the other parent works, looks for work, studies, or is not physically able to take care of that child. So it is normally not allowed for the other parent to take VAB for the same time that the pregnant parent is taking graviditetspenning.

    However, it is possible to make an application and explain why the pregnant parent is not able to look after the child. A case officer will then consider the application and see if we can make an exception.

    Best regards;
