Parliamentary trustees 2019-2023

Kela’s administration and operations are supervised by 12 Parliamentary Trustees who are nominated by Parliament. The Trustees have a four-year term of office.   

The Trustees nominate Kela’s Board and the auditors. The Trustees approve the financial statements and accounting principles based on the recommendation of the Board and issue decisions on releasing the Board from liability. The Trustees also submit an annual report on their operations to Parliament.
