Entrepreneur's sickness allowance

As an entrepreneur you may be entitled to sickness allowance for the period of your incapacity for work. Get a medical certificate detailing your incapacity and submit your daily allowance application to Kela within two months following the date when you fell ill. The amount of your daily allowance will be determined on the basis of your income from work. You will not receive actual sickness allowance for the waiting period but you may receive YEL or Mela daily allowance.
