How to report changes that will affect your guarantee pension
If you are paid a guarantee pension, you must notify Kela of the following types of changes:
- if you begin to receive another pension, compensation or survivors' pension from Finland or from abroad or if the amount of these benefits changes
- if you move abroad or stay abroad for more than 3 months
- if you start a job that pays you more than EUR 855.48per month (between 1 January 2022 and 31 July 2022) or EUR 885.63 per month (from August 1st 2022).
If you are aged over 65 years or you receive an old-age pension and you start working, you need not report this to Kela.
However, report the work if you are aged under 65 years and you receive a disability pension from Kela and an old-age pension from the authorised pension provider.
