Moving to Finland to look for employment

Miten pääsen Suomen sosiaaliturvaan? Miten saan Kela-kortin? Voinko saada työttömyysturvaa tai perhe-etuuksia? Vaikuttavatko lähtömaan etuudet Kelan etuuksiin? │ How can I become covered by the Finnish social security system? How can I get a Kela card? Can I receive unemployment benefits or family benefits? Do benefits from the country of origin affect the benefits paid by Kela?

Moving to Finland to look for employment

Lukematon viesti Kirjoittaja AnnaF » 08 Heinä 2020, 23:28


I am planning on moving to Finland, my boyfriend is a Finnish citizen. I am coming the EU and just recently graduated from my university in the Netherlands. I have had a part-time job for the last 3.5 years in the Netherlands while studying, and worked at least 56 hours per month.
I am planning on looking for employment in Finland. Would I be entitled for any unemployment benefits from the Finnish government during the period I will look for work?
