Försäkringskassan wants close to 160,000 crowns back

A man got a job but did not disclose any information about it to Försäkringskassan (the Swedish Social Insurance Agency). As a result, he continued to receive payments for incapacity benefit and occupational injuries benefit.

The man started a full-time job in the summer of 2018, but Försäkringskassan continued to make benefit payments until the following spring before the error was detected.

When Försäkringskassan received income information from the employer, it became clear that the man, who is approaching 60 years old, was no longer losing income as a result of a previous work injury.

In this case, many months had passed before Försäkringskassan became aware of the man's new situation. Money was paid out in error during the period July 2018 to April 2019.

In total, the man received close to 160,000 crowns in error.

Försäkringskassan has not found any circumstances that would allow the man to be exempt from liability and avoid repaying the money.

"The fact that you did not report that your income had increased for a long time, speaks strongly against any exemption from repaying the entire amount that was paid out in error”, writes Försäkringskassan in the decision notified to the man.
