Completing studies

An earnings-related daily allowance may be paid once you have completed your studies and you have fulfilled the membership and employment condition.

The employment condition must be fulfilled within a review period of 28 months. However, full-time studies extend the review period. The review period can be extended to a maximum total length of 9 years and 4 months. Part-time studies do not extend the review period.

Kela’s student financial aid will not be granted concurrently with a daily unemployment allowance. If you are granted student financial aid while receiving a daily allowance, the amount of the student financial aid will be deducted from your daily allowance.
