The Finnish Parliament has approved an additional index adjustment for social benefits for 2022. With this adjustment, the amount of earnings-related allowance, mobility assistance and job alternation compensation will increase. The adjustment will increase benefits paid from 1 August to 31 December 2022.
The index increment will apply to the basic component of earnings-related allowance, which is equal to the basic unemployment allowance. Child increments and the increased component of basic unemployment allowance will also be increased.
|Amount before index increase (EUR)
|Amount after index increase (EUR)
|Basic unemployment allowance
|Increased component of basic unemployment allowance
|Child increment 1
|Child increment 2
|Child increment 3 or more
If you receive daily allowance, you do not need to apply for the increase separately. KOKO will do the adjustment automatically.
The earnings-related unemployment allowance calculator and calculation examples on KOKO’s website will be updated in August.
