Synopsis
The Swedish social security system is an integral part of the country’s welfare system, and is classified into two types: the universal and social insurance system (old system) and unified social insurance, and the individual notional and mandatory individual accounts system (new system), which was established in 1999. The new insurance system covers persons born in or after 1954, while individuals born in or before 1937 are covered by the old system. With the exception of the earnings-related part of unemployment insurance, the social security regime is compulsory and covers everyone who lives or works in Sweden. To access all these social benefits, an individual requires a personnummer (a Swedish personal identity number) from the Swedish Tax Agency, and must register with the Försäkringskassan (Swedish Social Insurance Agency) for a social security number.
