What is a disability pension?
You are eligible for a disability pension if you become unfit for work because of illness or injury. The Norwegian Public Service Pension Fund’s disability pension is granted regardless of the reason you are unfit for work or whether the condition is permanent or temporary. Illness and occupational injury and wear and tear are common reasons for becoming unfit for work. The disability pension is coordinated with social benefits from the National Insurance Scheme, and the Norwegian Public Service Pension Fund guarantees you a 66 percent disability pension if you have full pension-qualifying service.
