If you are unable to support yourself you can apply for maintenance support.
Maintenance support is needs-tested financial assistance that is paid by the municipal Social Services Department. You cannot receive Maintenance support if you have other means of support, e.g. if you are receiving maintenance support from the Swedish Migration Authority. If your application for maintenance support is approved, you are still required to continue looking for other means of support, e.g. by applying for all the jobs that you can get.
Maintenance support is calculated to give you a reasonable standard of living. The amount you receive in support depends on your family situation.
