Financial support when you are ill
- workers who earn a wage, self-employed persons and people who are unemployed have a right to sickness allowance.
- the amount of the allowance depends on your salaries, certain benefits and other income.
If you are ill and unable to work for more than two weeks, you have a right to sickness allowance paid by Kela. You will get the minimum allowance even if you do not have a job and earn money.
