    Severe criticism of Försäkringskassan for slow processing in cases on insurance affiliation and child benefits

    Hide information


    R.S. applied for child benefits on the 4th of February 2016. On the 18th of March 2016, he also handed in information regarding the investigation of his wife M.S.’s case on insurance affiliation. Försäkringskassan did not initiate the case on insurance affiliation until four and a half month had passed. M.S. received insurance affiliation in Sweden on the 18th of August 2016 but it was not until the 6th of February 2017 that Försäkringskassan took a decision on R.S.’s case. The Parliamentary Ombudsmen notes that Försäkringskassan’s slow processing was not due to difficulties in obtaining documents from a foreign country, which the Parliamentary Ombudsmen has recognized in previous cases, but due to Försäkringskassan’s own lack of initiative.
