Additional front-veteran’s supplement
Pensioners who are living in Finland and paid a national pension and a front-veteran’s supplement may be eligible for an additional front-veteran’s supplement. It is not payable to persons who have participated in mine clearance operations.
The additional front-veteran's supplement is equal to 25–45 percent of the amount by which the recipient's national pension exceeds EUR 91,33 per month.
The highest possible additional front-veteran’s supplement is paid to pension recipients who do not receive pensions that reduce the amount of the supplement, such as pensions from abroad.
The maximum amount of the additional front-veteran's supplement is
- for persons living alone EUR 257.19 per month
- for persons living together with another person EUR 225.21 per month
The additional front-veteran’s supplement is free from tax.
The additional front-veteran’s supplement is paid on the 7th day of the month, in the same way as the front-veteran’s supplement and the national pension.
Disability supplement for war veterans
If you are paid additional front-veteran's supplement and care allowance for pensioners at the middle or highest rate, Kela will pay you a disability supplement.
