KELA - Social services in FinlandKELA is the Social Insurance Institution of Finland. KELA administers pensions and all kinds of benefits, including unemployment benefits.
Immigrants need to fill in the application for KELA card (KELA-kortti) to become covered under the Finnish social security system. KELA photocards are available at an extra fee. You may use your KELA photocard as your ID in your dealings with banks, post offices, pharmacies, when calling an ambulance, etc.
KELA provides partial reimbursement of your expenses for visiting private physicians and private clinics, for medical examinations and purchase of medicines. Your KELA card proves that you are insured against sicknesses and are entitled to reimbursement for your medical expenses. For example, by presenting your card at a pharmacy you can get a direct, on-the-spot reimbursement for your costs.
If an immigrant is registered as unemployed, s/he will be able to receive unemployment benefit payments only after obtaining the KELA-kortti.
