Norwegian Labour and Welfare Service (NAV)

All municipalities in Norway have a Labour and Welfare Service office. This is where we can obtain help with qualifying for employment or financial support during times of illness and other difficult life situations. The Norwegian Labour and Welfare Service is also responsible for social security administration in Norway. They are also responsible for providing social assistance. The Norwegian Labour and Welfare Service is not responsible for making sure we have a job, although one of their goals is to enable more people to join the workforce.

The main objectives of the Norwegian Labour and Welfare Service include:

    • Enabling more people to participate in the labour market and meaningful activities and have fewer people receive benefits
