Is it time for your child’s orientation to preschool or preschool class?

When you participate in your child’s orientation to preschool or preschool class, you are entitled to parental benefit. But, the rules vary slightly depending on whether you want to use days at the minimum level or at the sickness benefit level.

You can take out parental benefit days at the minimum level

If you are with the child at preschool for more than one-eighth of the day, you can take a full day of parental benefit at the minimum level. However, to take out parental benefit days at the minimum level, you must have first taken out 180 parental benefit days at the sickness benefit level.

In some cases, you can take out parental benefit at the sickness benefit level

The general rule is that you can only receive parental benefit when you are together with your child. But, during orientation you can take full parental benefit at the sickness benefit level, even if you leave the preschool or school for a period of time. It is important that you are together with your child more than 75 per cent (three-fourths) of your regular working hours.

You cannot take benefit for care of a sick child during orientation

Keep in mind that if your child gets sick during the orientation, you do not have right to take benefit for care of a sick child since you have already taken time off from work.

Frequently asked questions

Yes, you can. But you can only receive parental benefit for no more than 90 days back in time.

If you notify your employer at least two months before you will be on parental leave, the employer must approve your parental leave. At some workplaces, there are collective agreements that mean that you must provide notification earlier or later. Ask your employer if you want to find out what applies for you.

If you have an open parental benefit case, you can register your changed income on My pages (Mina sidor). If you do not have a case right now, you do not need to register at all.
