The increase in unemployment benefits will be abolished on January 1, 2025.

Daily allowance can be paid at an increased rate when a person participates in a service that promotes employment. The Finnish government decided in a spending limits session that the increase will be waived on January 1, 2025.

Last year, 29,000 people were paid an increased allowance.

The details of the entry into force will be announced when more information about the change is available.
