The Norwegian Labour and Welfare Service (NAV) plays a broad participatory role in the world of work and society, and contributes to the financial security of the individual. This depends on close interaction with the user, working life and local authorities, and a sharper focus on people with special needs in relation to the labour market and others in a challenging life situation.

NAV mainly uses the Internet to give information about our services and benefits. Here you will find information about your entitlements and duties available in English and other languages. There are also links to other more detailed information; however, some of this information is only available in Norwegian.
