Persons receiving a basic income must tell Kela of any changes which are relevant to the basic income or which disqualifies them from receiving a basic income.
Be sure to tell Kela if you receive or have claimed a social security benefit which disqualifies you for the basic income. The following are such benefits:
- child home care allowance
- all pensions: national pension, guarantee pension, earnings-related pensions
- rehabilitation allowance
- adult education subsidy, study grant and housing supplement (till 31.7.2017)
- compensations paid in the event of a loss of livelihood and based on the Motor Liability Insurance Act, the Patient Injuries Act or the Act on the Compensation of Crime Damage
- daily allowance, life annuity, supplemental annuity or assistance pension paid under the Military Injuries Act
- farm closure compensation.
- compensation for loss of income, daily allowance or pension paid under workers' compensation insurance laws
- workers' compensation or survivors' pensions paid in accordance with the Act on Accident and Pension Insurance for Athletes
- comparable benefits received from abroad.
Also tell Kela if
- you are hospitalised or in comparable institutional care for 90 days or more
- you are performing military or non-military service.
- you are serving a prison sentence
- you are covered by the social security laws of another country based on your employment
- you stay outside Finland for longer than 30 days
- you have been assigned a legal guardian
- your unemployment benefit is paid to the municipal authorities.
If the restriction preventing you from getting a basic income is lifted during the experiment, tell Kela so that payment of the basic income can be resumed.
