Basic conditions

In addition to meeting one of our work requirements ("Arbetsvillkor" – see below), in order to be eligible for benefits you must also meet certain basic conditions during your period of unemployment.

These work requirements mean that you must:

  • be able to work at least 3 hours each working day and for at least 17 hours a week on average
  • be registered as a job seeker  with the Swedish Public Employment Service  (“Arbetsförmedlingen”).
  • be at the disposal of the labour market. This means that it is your intention to work and there is nothing to prevent this.


Important to send activity reports to the Swedish Public Employment Service (“Arbetsförmedlingen”)

When you are unemployed, it is important to be an active job seeker to be able to receive benefit from a-kassan.

Since 1 September 2013, every job seeker must send in written activity reports, as they are called, to the Swedish Public Employment Service every month. If a job seeker mismanages his or her job seeking or contact with the Swedish Public Employment Service, this may result in action that affects the right to benefit.

The action is stepped up on each occasion:

1st time


2nd time 

Loss of right to benefit for 1 day

3rd time 

Loss of right to benefit for 5 days

4th time 

Loss of right to benefit for 10 days

 5th time

The right to benefit is lost until a new work requirement is fulfilled
