Polish Connection / Childbirth benefit

Childbirth benefit (engangsstønad)

Childbirth benefit (Norw. engangsstønad) is a one-time benefit granted on the birth or adoption of a child when the mother is not entitled to parental allowance (Norw. foreldrepenger).  Only the mother of the child can apply for the childbirth allowance. In order to be entitled to receive it, one must be a member of the Norwegian Social Security System (Norw. Folketrygden) at the time of birth or adoption.

Currently, the amount of the one-time benefit amounts to NOK 90 300 per child. It is tax-exempt.

In the case of a childbirth, the benefit can be paid in the 22nd week of pregnancy at the earliest.
The benefit can be applied for within six months after the birth at the latest or, as far as adoption is concerned, six months after taking over responsibility for the child.
