Family and social services

Finnish society supports its members through various forms of services and income transfers. The form of relationship in which partners live has an impact on the administration of assets, inheritance and the status of children. Should conflicts arise, help can be sought from the authorities and organisations specialising in family matters. Ageing, divorces and other changes in life situations often require contacting the authorities, especially the municipality and Kela (the Social Insurance Institution of Finland).
