How to apply
You must fill out and sign the form “Søknad om pleiepenger ved barns sykdom” (NAV 09-11.05). Please read the instructions at the back of the form carefully.
When you apply for an attendance allowance for a period of up to 8 weeks, the medical statement must always be made by a hospital physician. Should you need to claim attendance allowances for a period beyond 8 weeks, you will have to reapply, and this time any physician in a specialist health service can fill out the medical statement.
Psychologists, psychology specialists, physical therapists, social workers, general practitioners or other professional groups cannot sign the medical statement.
We also need information about your income.
If you apply for an extension and it is less than 4 weeks since you last received the attendance allowance, your employer must send an amended income report with the new periods.
The form is listed under the heading of “Forms and applications”.
NAV can grant attendance allowances dating back up to 3 months before the month you submitted your claim, provided you meet all the criteria. If you are claiming an attendance allowance for June, for example, you must submit your claim to NAV by the end of September.
You must immediately notify NAV if your child no longer needs constant care and supervision, or if:
