To get your rights to unemployment benefits transferred to UK (or other EU/EEA-countries)
If it's coming to a mass dismissal, the employer has to inform Nav about the situation, and they have to provide you with a form PD U1/N-301 that allows you to claim benefits from your home nation. You must bring this document to the job center in UK, to proof that you have been paying into the Norwegian system, and therefor are qualified to claim for unemployment benefits in UK. (or other EU/EEA-countries)
If you want to get your right to social benefits transferred to UK (or other EU/EEA-countries) as described above, then follow the link and submit the form NAV 04-02.05 “Application for certificate PD U1/N-301 for coordination of social security rights in EEA countries”
