Long waits for sickness benefits

Published måndag 7 mars 2011 kl 20.56

Appeals against decisions made by the Swedish Social Insurance Agency grew by 35 percent last year, causing long delays for those waiting, particularly for sickness benefits.

Social Insurance Minister, Ulf Kristersson, told news agency TT that although it was positive that people appeal against unfair decisions, it was worrying that so many appear to distrust the authorities.

According to the latest figures, decisions over appeals can take up to nine months, which is three months longer than a year ago.

The minister has proposed the creation of specialised courts to deal with social insurance issues.
