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 or the Mina sidor/My Pages app. 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. If you cannot print out the form, you can call us and have a form mailed to you.
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.
When you are receiving support from both the Public Employment Service and the Social Insurance Agency (participating in the enhanced collaboration with the Social Insurance Agency) and are unable to report activities online, you can use this form:
