Unemployment benefits for entrepreneurs

As an entrepreneur, you are entitled to the same unemployment benefits as wage earners. Depending on your situation, you may get earnings-related allowance, basic unemployment allowance or labour market subsidy. If you work during the period of unemployment, you may also receive adjusted unemployment benefit. TE Services find out on a case-by-case basis whether you are entitled to unemployment benefits. Apply for unemployment allowance from the unemployment fund for entrepreneurs or from Kela.
