More Gvt Cash To Welfare Authority

Sweden's Social Insurance Authority, Försäkringskassan, is to get extra funds from the government to fill a 125 million US dollar budget shortfall.

They are also to get 83 million dollars extra annually, according to the Ministry of Health and Social Affairs.

Government investigators blamed the shortfall on a recent re-organisation in the authority, according to news agency TT, with late payouts to welfare claimants another effect of the turbulence.
