Submit employment status form

When can I submit an employment status form?

An employment status form is valid for 2 weeks and must be submitted every 14 days. On the employment status form a week always begins on a Monday and ends on a Sunday.

When you register as a user of an employment status form online, you will receive information about when to submit your employment status form for the first time. You can submit your employment status form online at “Ditt NAV” at any time of the day.

You must submit your employment status form on the Monday after the 14-day period for which the employment status form applies. If you want to submit your employment status form as early as possible, it is possible to submit your employment status form from Saturday in the last weekend of the period. This is on the condition that you are not planning to work at the weekend.

If you try to submit your employment status form too early, the “Submit employment status form” button will not be available.

What happens if you submit your employment status form too late?

If you submit your employment status form too late, a deduction will be made from the next payment of your unemployment benefit. A deduction equivalent to the number of days your employment status form was submitted too late will made from your next payment.

The final deadline for submitting your employment status form to avoid a deduction in your next payment is 11 p.m. on Monday one week after you should have submitted your employment status form.

Example:

The employment status form period is from Monday 1 June to Sunday 14 June. You can submit your employment status form from Saturday 13 June up to and including Monday 22 June at 11 p.m. If you send your employment status form after 11 p.m. on Monday 22 June, a deduction will be made for all the days that have passed since the end of the employment status form period on Sunday 14 June.

If you believe you have reasonable grounds for submitting your employment status form after the deadline, you can send a letter to NAV. You must explain here the reason for the delay and request to receive your unemployment benefit without a deduction.

If NAV finds that you have reasonable grounds, you can have the amount deducted paid in arrears. Examples of reasonable grounds are sudden illness or other unforeseen circumstances.

NAV rarely grants exemptions from the deadline. If you request an exemption from the deadline and this is turned down, you can appeal this decision within 6 weeks.

No deductions will be made from employment scheme benefits or supplementary benefits even though you submit your employment status card too late. However, you will not receive payment until NAV has received your employment status card.

If you submit your employment status card too late, this may mean that you will no longer be registered as a job seeker with NAV. You will be notified of this when you logon to “Ditt NAV”.

If you still want to be registered as a job seeker with NAV, you must register with NAV once again, or contact NAV. You must also apply to have payment of your unemployment benefit, which has been stopped, resumed.

If you have lost or your payments from NAV have been reduced because you submitted your employment status form too late, payments will not resume until from and including the date you registered as a job seeker again with NAV.

See status for submitting next employment status form

Your employment status form in “Ditt NAV” can show three different statuses:

1. It is too early to submit your employment status form
Your employment status form is to be submitted on the Monday after the 14-day period for which the employment status form applies. If you want to submit your employment status form early, you can submit the form from the Saturday of the last weekend in the period. If it is too early to submit your next employment status form, you will not have access to the form. The earliest date the next employment status form can be submitted is stated after the text “Can be submitted from”.

2. The next employment status form can be submitted at the right time
You are informed that a new employment status form is ready to be submitted. Click on the “Submit employment status form” button to fill out the form. If you want to wait until you submit the employment status form, you will find the deadline for submitting the form after the text “Final submission deadline before deduction”.

3. The next employment status card will be submitted too late
If you submit your employment status form later than Monday at 11 p.m. one week after the Monday on which you should have submitted the employment status form, the form has been submitted too late. If you submit your employment status form too late, a deduction equivalent to the number of days your employment status form was submitted too late will made from your next payment.

If the deadline for submitting your next employment status form at the right time has expired, you will be notified of this with the following sentence: “Submit now, you risk a deduction in your unemployment benefit”.
