Application for an illness grant

Apply for ordinary support first

You must be in an educational programme that entitles you to loans and grants. However, if you are in ordinary upper secondary education with statutory rights as a young person, you will not receive an additional grant.

Apply for ordinary support before you submit this application. 


Apply when you recover

As a rule, we don’t provide illness grants forward in time. You must therefore wait until you have recovered or until the academic year is over before applying.

Lånekassen must receive your application for an illness grant within six months after the end of the academic year or the course.

Assessment time

Your case will be processed by a Case Officer and you should expect it to take some time before you receive an answer.
