Social insurance in Sweden

The Swedish social insurance is linked to loss of income and presupposes that you have worked. The Swedish Social Insurance Agency pays out most of the contributions and establishes your qualifying income.

The Swedish social insurance is linked to loss of income and presupposes that you have worked. The Swedish Social Insurance Agency pays out most of the contributions and establishes your qualifying income (SGI) based on your estimated annual income. Independent business operators provide an estimate of their annual net income.

Artistic scholarships are not counted as income for the purpose of your qualifying income.

Your qualifying income (SGI) is then used to calculate the amount of, for example, parental benefit or sickness benefit. For more detailed information about living in Sweden and being covered by the Swedish social insurance system, read here. Income is considered part of the qualifying income (SGI) if it is paid for at least six months, or it recurs annually.
