If you have other assets, such as a boat, motorcycle, holiday home, these must also be sold.

You are also required to apply for all benefits available to you, such as housing benefit, pension, sickness benefit, parental benefit or maintenance support. You can contact the Swedish Social Insurance Agency (Försäkringskassan) for more information about how to apply for the benefits above.
