Unemployment benefit is financial assistance when looking for a job. So when you receive unemployment benefits, you must apply for a job and participate in labor market measures.
Daily unemployment benefit is 62.4% of your previous income.
You may be eligible to claim if you have become unemployed or if your working hours have been reduced by at least 50%. There may also be a waiting period depending on the circumstances.
If you are an EEA citizen and have become unemployed in Norway without reaching a sufficient minimum income, you may still be entitled to this support based on work in another EEA country.
You must submit a report to NAV every 14 days, either electronically or using a form.
