Forms

You can search for forms based on topic or the form’s ID code. Another option is to browse forms by topic areas.

The forms are in PDF format. Click Open PDF to open the form you want. Most of the benefits available from Kela can also be claimed in the OmaKela e-service (available in Finnish and Swedish).

To ensure that the forms function properly, you need the latest version of Adobe Reader. The program is available as a free download on the Adobe website. First, save the blank form to your device. Do not fill in the application directly in the browser, otherwise some of the information may not be saved.

  1. First, save the blank form to your device. Do not fill in the application directly in the browser, otherwise some of the information may not be saved.
  2. Open the form with Adobe Reader and fill it in.
  3. Save the completed form to your device. Note that the form must be in PDF format.
  4. Send the application using the OmaKela e-service:
  • Log in to OmaKela (available in Finnish and Swedish). Select Tee hakemus (File an application).
  • Select the benefit you are applying for.
  • Choose the files on your device and press Lähetä (Send).
  • When you send your application online you do not need to sign it.
  • Send supporting documents via OmaKela after you have submitted your application. If they are paper documents, you can photograph them.

Another option is to send the application by mail. Fill in and print out the form. Send the application and any supporting documents by mail. The address is Kela, PL 10, 00056 KELA. If the form has another address you should use that address instead.

The download or upload of a file may sometimes fail because of connection problems, in which case you will see an error message. The next time, the web browser may retrieve the same error message from your computer’s cache. Clear the browser cache to see if the problem goes away.

If you are unable to fill in or print a form, make sure that you are using Adobe Reader. You can also change device for instance from a tablet to a computer. Alternative PDF readers or viewers do not necessarily support all of the fill-in functions used in the forms. Some problems may be caused by using an old or defective version of Adobe Reader, in which case you will have to reinstall the program. The latest version is available as a free download on the Adobe website.

The forms are not yet accessible. In other words, they cannot be used with a screen reader. Read more about accessibility in our accessibility statement.

When you use forms with calculation features, you should make sure that you are using the latest version of Adobe Reader.

When you enter amounts on a form, please use

  • a full stop as thousands separator and a comma as decimal separator (1.234,00 €) in forms in Finnish, Swedish and Sámi.
  • a comma as thousands separator and a full stop as decimal separator in forms in English.

Forms that are intended for healthcare professionals are primarily available from the patient data system that the organisation uses.

They are also available for professional use in PDF format on the Terveysportti and Lääkäriportaali portals and in the members section of the Finnish Medical Association website.
