Retired EU citizens

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?

My retired parents are planning to move permanently from Romania to Finland to be closer to family. What are the steps in this process? Are they entitled to healthcare in Finland as EU senior citizens? Can they transfer their pension to Finland?

Thank you!

Hei MartaS!

Anyone moving to Finland for more than 1 year must register with the Digital and Population Data Services Agency . The local register office will decide on the basis of your notification whether you can be entered into the Finnish population register and whether you will get a place of domicile. As part of the registration, you will be issued a personal identity code, if you have not been given one already.

They can apply for the right to the health care in Finland by sending an application for the Kela-card and attach the form Y77e (moving to Finland). They should also send certificate E121/S1 to Kela for registration. The certificate is granted by the country that pays their pension.

With kind regards
