Unemployment and unemployment security by keyword unemployment

Employment and Economic Development Offices advertise jobs, help in finding employment and provide support services, such as counselling for job seekers. Unemployed people can also participate in labour market training.

The condition for receiving unemployment security is that the unemployed person is available to the labour market. Unemployed persons can apply for unemployment benefits when they have registered as job seekers with the Employment and Economic Development Office. Registration can be done online using the Employment and Economic Development Office's Oma työnhaku (My job search) page. Users must log in using their online bank identifiers.

Unemployment funds pay their members earnings-related unemployment allowance. Kela pays a basic allowance to those who are not members of any unemployment fund, if the conditions for the benefit are fulfilled.
