Norway/ 5.1 General legislation  

5.1.4 Social security frameworks

There are no particular social security frameworks for Norwegian artists or creative workers. Concerning general legislation, the Act on National Insurance ensures that unemployed people are entitled to daily cash benefits. The daily cash benefits partially compensate for a loss of income due to unemployment. Working hours must have been reduced by at least 50% compared to previous working hours. The Act on Social Services ensures that benefits are available to people who are unable to provide their own subsistence.
