Amount and payment of basic assistance
The full amount of basic assistance is equal to the national pension (€662.82 per month).
Its amount depends not only on the net family income but also on the number of qualifying family members. The first family member gets the full amount of assistance. The second gets 50% of the full amount, while the third and all additional family members get 30% of the full amount.
Kela pays the basic assistance on the first business day of the month. Amounts less than €5.04 are not paid.
The conscript's allowance is free from tax.
