Last updated: 24 3 2020

If you have an impaired functional ability that affects you physically or mentally, this is known as having a functional impairment. You may need to use an aid or have support in order to manage your everyday life or work.

Working with a disability

It is important that you tell Arbetsförmedlingen straight away if you have a disability. For example, Arbetsförmedlingen can help you adapt your workplace so that it matches your needs. You can also get support from a hearing loss assistant, a vision specialist or sign language interpreter if you have impaired hearing or vision.

Support and allowances

You may be entitled to several different types of support depending on what type of functional impairment you have.
