Forms and certificates
Common forms and certificates for job seekers.
When applying for unemployment benefit
You log in to your unemployment insurance fund to apply for benefit or to provide information about any changes that might affect the benefit. If you cannot use the digital service, contact your unemployment insurance fund and request a form.
Were you an employee before you became unemployed? If so, your previous employer must complete an employer's certificate, so that the unemployment insurance fund can perform its calculations.
If you are unemployed, you can apply to take your Swedish unemployment benefit with you to look for work in another country in the EU, EEA or Switzerland. In this case, you need Certificate U2 from the IAF (Swedish Unemployment Insurance Board).
When you are unable to report activities on the website
Every month, you are required to submit an activity report where you make a report for the prior month’s activities. You must submit your activity report no earlier than the 1st and no later than the 14th of each month. The easiest way to report your activities is on our website. To be able to do this, you will need to log in with an e-identification (such as a mobile bank ID for example).
If you do not have an e-ID, you can download the Activity Report form and print it out.
Complete the form and send it to us by post. The address is on the form. Remember to send the form in good time so that it reaches us no later than on the 14th. You can also hand in the form at your nearest office. You may not send the form by email.
