Finnish social security

The right to Finnish social security depends on how long you will reside in Finland.

The right to social security may also be granted based on work being performed, for example if there is no intention of moving to Finland permanently. All permanent residents of Finland are entitled to the social benefits provided by Kela.

If the immigrant (based on EU legislation or a social security agreement or are covered by social security in another country) receives benefits from another country, will the right to Finnish social security not be granted.

Immigrants must apply to Kela to gain access to Finnish social security. Kela provides also a Kela card to all persons, that belong to the Finnish health insurance system.
