Work assessment allowance

If your ability to work has been reduced by at least fifty per cent as a result of illness, injury or impairment, you may be entitled to work assessment allowance. The most important question is not how much your health is imapaired, but to what extent it affects your possibilities of taking paid employment.

Work assessment allowance is intended to assure that you have income in a transitional period when you, due to illness or injury, require work-related measures, medical treatment or other follow-up from NAV in order to obtain employment.

As a rule, you must have been a member of the National Insurance scheme for at least three years before you apply. If you have been fit for employment, it is sufficent that you have been a member for one year before you apply. Exeptions can be made. You must be between the ages of 18 and 67, and, as a rule, you must live or stay in the country.
