Two years after the NAV scandal broke out, the NAV still doesn’t have an overview of the number of illegal decisions it made between 1994 and 2012.

Two years ago this week, the news was reported that the NAV had misinterpreted EU rules regarding the possibility of getting Norwegian social security benefits while in other EEA countries since 2012.

It later became clear that the NAV implemented the regulations incorrectly all the way back to 1994.

According to the latest figures from the NAV, 7,438 people have so far been identified as victims of the mistake. But the NAV still has no overview of how many people were affected during the period, the newspaper Dagsavisen writes.

Lawyer Olav Lægreid, the coordinator of the legal aid scheme for those affected by the social security scandal, believes it was wrong of the previous government to plan for the NAV to identify all the cases by itself. He believes that professionals who do not work in the NAV should do the job.
