At NAR we have our own insurance office, offering members a wide range of insurance policies. Call us, and we will help you choose the right policy for your needs. If you are uncertain about which insurance policy suits you best, we will be happy to assist you free of charge.

The insurance policies we offer apply to all members, with standardized terms, conditions and pricing.

The following is only a brief summary. For more information, please contact our insurance office.

Mandatory insurance

New members, except students, automatically join a mandatory insurance plan without providing any information on their health. Coverage is as follows:

  • Life insurance: 6 B.a.
  • Disability insurance: 80% of 6 B.a. (2% discount per year between ages 26–60)
  • Accident insurance: 45 B.a. (covers member, spouse and children under 20)
  • Critical illness: 1 B.a.

“B.a.” refers to the “basic amount” under the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme. This amount changes every year. For 2019/2020 basic amount has been set to NOK 99 858.

Disability insurance expires at age 60 at year-end, while the remaining insurance policies expire at age 67 at year-end.

The monthly premium for mandatory insurance is NOK 158. This is deducted from the member’s salary along with NAR’s membership fee.

If you have no need for mandatory insurance, you can opt out by filling out a declaration form. Contact our insurance office for help.

Please note that disability insurance requires you to be a member of the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme. See www.nav.no/english for more information on how to become a member.

Optional life, disability and critical illness insurance

As a member, you and your spouse, registered partner or cohabitant can take out additional coverage for life, disability and/or critical illness. To apply, you have to fill out a health declaration form. Additional coverage requires you to have compulsory insurance.

Life insurance

Life insurance is a top priority when you want to make sure your loved ones are protected. Our life insurance covers any death regardless of cause. You can choose between 12 B.a, 24 B.a. and 36 B.a. coverage. The policy expires at age 70 at year-end.

Disability insurance

Disability insurance can play a crucial role in keeping you financially afloat if a disabling illness or injury should strike. You will receive a one-time disability payment in case of 40% or more permanent occupational disability. You may also receive a disability payment if you have been at least 40% disabled for 36 months, and will be so for at least another 12 months.

You can choose between 12 B.a, 24 B.a. and 36 B.a coverage. The policy expires at age 60 at year-end.

Please note that disability insurance requires you to be a member of the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme. See www.nav.no/english for more information on how to become a member.

Critical illness

This policy covers you financially in case of cancer, heart attack, brain tumor, burn injuries, multiple sclerosis and other critical illnesses or injuries listed in the policy document. You can choose anywhere from 1–7 B.a. coverage.
