Decision on criteria for leviable charges

The general principles underlying the charges that government authorities and agencies may levy are defined in the Act on Criteria for Charges Payable to the State. The Act also applies to Kela. A decision on criteria for leviable charges can be found as an appendix.

Most of Kela’s operations come under the category of services performed free of charge defined in section 5 of the Act, including services designed to provide economic security in the form of social security benefits.

Additional information can be found in the appendixes.
