If you have agreed joint care and control (50/50), the care benefit days will be divided equally between you.
Sharing care benefit days between parents
The parent with whom the child lives on a permanent basis, may transfer days to the other parent. NAV calculates the number of care benefit days to which each of you are entitled based on the agreed visiting arrangement.
If the form is not signed by both parents, you must attach a written statement confirming the visiting arrangements signed by both parents, or a copy of the access agreement.
As a rule, you cannot share care benefit days if you have a child with a new spouse or cohabitant. The exception is if you have been granted additional care benefit days because your child is chronically ill or disabled. You may then share these care benefit days.
Transfer of care benefit days to a new spouse/cohabitant
If you are the sole carer, you may transfer up to 10 care benefit days to a spouse or cohabitant. If you are cohabitants, you must have lived together for at least 12 months.
How do you share and transfer care benefit days?
You must notify NAV on form NAV 09-06.05, which you will find under the “Forms and applications” tab.
