  • Hello!

    You have to meet three basic conditions to eligable for unemployment benefits.
    1. The membership condition - been a member of an a-kassa for 12 months.
    2. The working requirement - during a period of 12 months worked for at least 6 months, at least 80 hours per calendar month. We usually look at the last year. The time may be extended, for example, to parental leave, completed full-time studies or sickness benefit.
    3. Registered at arbetsförmedlingen - you have to look for and take work in Sweden.
    If you have not been a member in an a-kassa for 12 months, you can still receive compensation based on your working hours. The basic benefit is maximun SEK 365 per day.

    Kind regards, Anna

  • What are the acceptable reasons for resigning according to the unemployment insurance act?
    Also, if l became unemployed for how long can l recieve benefits (given that l have been a member for at least 12 months)?
    Do l have to reside in Sweden to recieve the benefits?
  • Hello Wendy!
    Tanks for your post.

    The acceptabel respons are
    • If your job makes you sick and you have a doctors recommodation thar you should quit,
    • If you are bullied and harassed at your job or
    • If your partner has gotten a new steady job so far away that you have to move. In this case you must have children together.
    What happens if one quit ones job?

    If you are unemployed with benefit you have to stay in Sweden and as unemployed you can get 300 days with benefit, which equals about 14 months.  

    Kind regards, Annika

  • Hi,
    You say about 6 months of 12 needing to be employed. My question is:
    I finished my previous job in the end of July, and I have just finished receiving unemployment benefits (end of Jan), and started working. I have a 6 month contract. If I am not hired after this 6 months. Does this count as 6 months from 12? Thus my unemployment days reset, or would they continue from the previous batch?
  • Hello Jay!
    Congratulations to your six month contract. If you return to unemployment within one year from the last day of benefits, you will continue on the same terms as when you last had benefits on the same batch of days.

    All the best, Petter
