Major National Insurance System Problems

Published måndag 26 januari 2009 kl 10.47
Flaws in the national insurance system hit pensioners and those registered sick and on parental leave

Union and Social Democratic leaders are demanding more money for Sweden’s hard-pressed national insurance system, which has also been criticised by government regulators.

In a debate article in broadsheet Dagens Nyheter the head of Sweden’s civil servants’ union says that employees of the insurance system, known as Försäkringskassan, are not happy with recent changes. A union survey found 39 per cent of employees saying that the system is unable to carry out its responsibilities.

This comes after years of job cuts in Försäkringskassan, amounting to 2,500 full time positions.

And the public is not happy either. The second half of 2008 saw almost 1800 complaints, almost double the figure for the same period last year. This has led to tough criticisms of from the state’s justice ombudsman.

Union leaders now say an extra 122 million US dollars is needed to stop a major breach in Sweden’s social security system.
