Service in Estonian

Kela produces benefit guides and leaflets covering the entire range of social security benefits available from Kela. Some brochures are available in Finnish and Swedish only, but some are translated to English and other languages.

Phone service

If you don’t speak enough Finnish, Swedish or English to explain your situation on the phone, please tell us. We will get an interpreter as needed and call you back.
