The purpose of rehabilitation assistance is to help rehabilitation clients find work after a rehabilitation intervention arranged by Kela. The need for rehabilitation assistance is evaluated individually. You can get rehabilitation assistance if, after completing rehabilitation, you start a job where you earn significantly less than what you used to, or if you start a job training programme.
You cannot get rehabilitation assistance if you have a right to unemployment allowance or labour market subsidy.
Amount and payment
Rehabilitation assistance is paid after a completed rehabilitation intervention and for periods of time in which you are working.
How to apply for rehabilitation assistance
When to apply
Apply for rehabilitation assistance within six months of the date on which you last received rehabilitation allowance.
