What is the limit one can stay outside of EU when on parental leave?


Where can I read about the 6 months rule travel limit to keep the föräldrapenning when travelling abroad outside of EU/EES/Switzerland (even in Swedish) during parental leave? I want to visit my family abroad for 5 months 1/2 in the USA next year, but I don't find anything on the Försäkringskassan website mentioning anything about this 6 months rule.

Here is where I have looked:


  • Hello,
    Thank you for your post.

    Here in the list, you can check the one about parental benefit.
    On the page 19, you can read the rules about what applies when you are on parental leave outside of EU/EES.

    Best regards,
