It is important that you do not submit your application too early, as it may be rejected.

How much can you receive in unemployment benefit:
Unemployment benefit is calculated on the basis of your earned income and any national insurance benefits you received last year (or the average of the last three years prior to applying for unemployment benefit). Unemployment benefit payments equal approx. 62.4 percent of your gross income. Any income in excess of 6 G or lump-sum grant paid in connection with the birth of a child is not included in the basis on which unemployment benefit is calculated.

How to register:
If you are to seek unemployment benefits you must first be registered as a jobseeker. You will find a separate claim form regarding unemployment benefits on nav.no. There is also information about which attachments that is required, and how to submit your application. There is a separate application process for unemployment benefits. It is not sufficient to register as a jobseeker. To receive unemployment benefits, you must be an active jobseeker and apply for vacancies.
