If you need to report the jobs you applied for

If you are unemployed and receive some kind of compensation, we can sometimes request documentation that shows that you applied for the jobs you reported in your activity report.

Here is how this is done

If you are selected for a check, you will receive a letter from us, together with a response form. On the response form, you see what jobs you must show that you applied for. You can show that you applied for a reported job by sending in, for example:

  • your application
  • documentation that shows that you applied for the job, such as a response from the employer that shows that you applied for the job, or other documentation that shows that the employer received your application
  • a screen grab (screen dump) of the confirmation that you applied for the job.

Save documentation that shows that you applied for a reported job for at least three months.

What happens if you do not respond?

If you do not send in the completed response form on time, or if you cannot show that you applied for the jobs you reported in the activity report, it can impact your right to compensation.

If you participate in a labour market policy programme or initiative, it is the Swedish Public Employment Service that investigates the right to compensation. If you have compensation from an unemployment benefits society, the Swedish Public Employment Service can notify the unemployment benefits society, which investigates the right to compensation.
