Social assistance, other languages
Social assistance (ekonomiskt bistånd/försörjningsstöd)
If you are unable to provide for your needs or to obtain provision for them in any other way, you are entitled to assistance from the social welfare committee towards your livelihood and for your living in general. This is a benefit you receive from your municipality and it is given to both individual people and families.
The assistance aims to ensure a reasonable standard of living and is designed in such a way as to strengthen your resources for independent living.
Whether you are entitled to social assistance depends on your income and assets. It is Social Services in the municipality where you live that decides whether you are entitled to social assistance.
