How does studying affect Kela benefits?
You should therefore notify Kela if you begin your studies. You can do so in the OmaKela e-service, in a letter, or by calling Kela’s customer service. Please note that our e-service is only available in Finnish and Swedish.
Please note that you also cannot get student financial aid while performing conscript service. Persons receiving a pension are also not eligible for student financial aid. However, a survivors’ pension or partial old-age pension does not prevent you from getting financial aid.
