Proof of job applications

If you are unemployed and receive unemployment benefit from the unemployment insurance fund or the Swedish Social Insurance Agency, we may sometimes ask you to submit proof of the job applications shown 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 submit the pre-filled Response Form in time or are unable to prove that you have applied for the jobs shown in your Activity Report, you may be given a warning or lose your unemployment benefit from the unemployment insurance fund or the Swedish Social Insurance Agency for one or more days.
