Delivery of the 2019 edition of the maternity package starts
The first maternity packages of the 2019 edition will be delivered to the customers this week. Deliveries of the new edition will begin when existing stocks run out.
The date of the switchover to the new edition varies slightly from year to year because it depends on the number of applications for maternity grant that come in. Kela gives out about 40,000 maternity packages every year. Two-thirds of those who apply for maternity grant choose the maternity package instead of a cash payment of EUR 170.
This year the maternity package contains a total of 63 products. New items include for instance bodysuits with boat neckline. When selecting the products, particular attention has been paid to quality. More information about the maternity package is available at kela.fi.
