If you have been granted a residence permit in Sweden
Here, you can read about what applies for you when you have a permanent or temporary residence permit in Sweden.
Social insurance if you have been granted a residence permit in accordance with the EU’s Temporary Protection Directive
You can have the right to certain benefits from the Swedish Social Insurance Agency (Försäkringskassan) if you work in Sweden. For example, if you have a job and you fall ill you can apply for sickness benefit.
However, if you have been granted a residence permit in accordance with the EU´s Temporary Protection Directive, you will not be able to be registered as a resident of Sweden. This means that you do not have the right to the same benefits that residents of Sweden have, for example child care benefit.
If you applied for asylum and have been granted a residence permit, you can be registered as a resident and have the right to the same benefits that registered residents in Sweden have.
The Swedish Migration Agency (Migrationsverket) has more information about what applies for people coming to Sweden as a refugee.
This information is available in other languages.
