For grantees

Webinar: Insurance Coverage for Grantees

Is the Finnish pension insurance system for grantees unclear to you? Are you a new grantee who does not yet have a MYEL insurance? Do you foresee upcoming changes in your grant work that may affect your insurance status?

If you have been awarded a Kone Foundation grant in Finland for more than 4 months and you are eligible for Finnish social security, you have a legal obligation to apply for pension insurance from The Farmers’ Social Insurance Institution MELA. The insurance provides you with broad coverage for your grant work. Note also, that grant recipients can apply for an adjustment to their MYEL earnings in the middle of the insurance period as of 1 January 2024. 

Join our webinar on Friday, 9 February at 1 p.m. to learn the basics of how the insurance works and what to do in changing situations such as working abroad.

MELA specialist will provide a presentation in English. After that there will be time for questions.
