How to apply for support

When you have notified the Swedish Tax Agency (Skatteverket) that you have moved to Sweden, you will receive a temporary personal identity number (personnummer), which you need to log in to Nais; see the link below and follow the instructions. You will need a valid medical certificate in English to make your application. When you have made your application, you will receive an email confirming receipt of your application. The disability coordinator will book a meeting with you. Your recommendation will later on be confirmed in Nais.
