Background information

In the service counselling for the unemployed, counsellors provide guidance on matters related to health and social services. These include issues related to the person’s health, work ability and rehabilitation. The counsellors explain what services are available, how they can be applied for, and what preconditions there are for accessing them. If necessary, they can also provide guidance in applying for and combining financial aids.

The counsellors do not make any service-related decisions. The TE Office is responsible for providing advice on job-seeking and training. The service is intended for unemployed people and those threatened by unemployment.
