Basic social assistance will be paid by Kela starting 2017

Since January 1st, 2017 the basic social assistance will be organized and paid by Kela, not municipalities’ social services. However, Adult Social Work and Empowering Services of City of Jyväskylä will assist customers during the transition phase of services.

Paper applications for social assistance for January 2017 can be submitted to Kela starting 12 December 2016. Application forms will be available from Kela offices and can be printed from www.kela.fi/forms. You can also submit supporting documentation online. Online customer service in social assistance matters will become available on 12 December 2016 at www.kela.fi/asiointi.

Kela’s service number concerning basic social assistance is +358 20 692 207 (as of 12.12.2016).

Social assistance is a temporary form of financial support which is available only after you have applied for any other social security benefits to which you may be entitled. Read more: www.kela.fi/toimeentulotuki
