Using the online service is easy and convenient

You can handle almost all your contacts with Kela online. In the online service you can check your own data, apply for many benefits and send the required supporting documents.

For privacy reasons, e-mail cannot be used for communications with Kela. However, if you use Kela's online customer service system, you can send messages to Kela through a secure connection. Kela may sometimes request additional information from you (for example, in order to decide your application). You can choose to receive such requests through the messaging service. This will speed up the customer service process and reduce the need to send letters. You can choose to be notified of incoming requests by e-mail and/or text message.
