Child allowances for expatriates

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?

Child allowances for expatriates

Lukematon viesti Kirjoittaja Rowena » 15 Huhti 2019, 13:06


I am an expatriate living in Finland, coming from a country with no reciprocal social security agreement with Finland. What are the requirements for receiving child allowances?

Thank you.

Dear Rowena

Kela provides many benefits for families with children and parents are entitled to family leave and various benefits from following the birth of a child.

Please be familiar with our web site where you can study all information concerning these different benefits including how to apply for them:

Kela needs your application forms filled in for benefits and the notification of moving to Finland then to start the handling process on these matters, including the Finnish social security coverage.

As this process is over you will receive a decision.

Kind regards
