Human Entrance Wins Social Insurance Appeal
We are pleased to announce that we recently won a Social Insurance eligibility appeal on behalf of one of our clients.The benefits applied for, were rejected by the Social Security Agency, claiming that this particular type of residence permit indicated that the applicant does not in fact live in Sweden, but is merely visiting.
It is not possible to update your status from dependent to main applicant in the middle of a permit period, which creates discrepancies between the Migration Agency and the Social Security Agency, when applications are submitted from dependents who have gained employment. A consequence of this could be that applications are denied, when they in fact are eligible for certain benefits.
Hopefully our recent win will be an eye opener and an example going forward, to ensure applications are carefully reviewed to determine eligibility, based on employment,even for people who were originally registered as a dependent.
