How do changes in your relationship affect Kela benefits?
Getting married or divorced or the death of a spouse or partner can affect the benefits you get from Kela. Notify such changes to Kela and, if appropriate, submit a new application or an application for the review of your benefit.
Getting married can affect the benefits you and your spouse get, so it must be notified to Kela. A registered partnership affects benefits the same way as a marriage. Kela gets this information directly from the Population Information System.
