Holding the Entrepreneur Visa. Am I able to get Kela card?

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?

Hey,

I just moved to Finland holding the Startup Entrepreneurship Visa. I was granted the residency for 1 year for the first time and I can apply for extend afterwards. And I intend to become a permanent resident. Under this circumstance, am I covered by social security system?

Thanks!
BR,
Grace

Hey GraceZ!

If you move to Finland as a self-employed person from a country outside the EU area, you are as a self-employed person entitled to benefits if your move to and residence in Finland are considered permanent. In addition, you must have arranged insurance under the Self-Employed Persons’ Pensions Act (YEL).

With kind regards
