Benefit to disability car

Statistical concepts and definitions

Processing time: From 2023 the decision date must be understood as the date on which the citizen receives the municipality's decision on support for a car before any complaints are processed. It is thus exclusively the date of the municipality's "first" decision that must be reported as the decision date.

This means that in connection with a complaint, the time between the application and decision date must not include in the decision date.

If a case about support for a car is referred from the Appeals Board to the municipality, this must not be reported as a new case or reported on the original case.

If the decision is a grant, the date on which the citizen receives a decision containing a amount of money for the car is reported.
