Cash benefit for parents of infants

Families with children aged between one and two years who do not attend a kindergarten may receive a cash benefit.

The condition for receiving the cash benefit for parents of infants is that the child does not have a place in a kindergarten that receives a public operating subsidy, or only has a part-time place. If the child has a part-time place in such a kindergarten, the parents may receive a reduced cash benefit.

The cash benefit is intended to help families to have more time to care for their own children and for families to have a real choice regarding the care of their children.

The cash benefit is per child with no means or needs testing. It is tax-free.

The scheme to provide a cash benefit for parents of infants is managed by the Labour and Welfare Administration (NAV). More information can be found on the Labour and Welfare Administration (NAV) website.
