Information in brief

This page includes links to short descriptions of our research projects.

Kela carries out research to analyse and provide information on the Finnish social security system and the way it functions. Among other topics, we look at family benefits, pensions, the labour market and unemployment benefits, health insurance, housing benefits and rehabilitation.  

We also analyse Kela’s own operations, including the customer service we provide and how we are as a workplace. We compile information on social security systems around the world and on current reform initiatives.
