Ohjeet hakemiseen

Are you out of work this summer?

PLEASE NOTE! The more carefully you have completed the application, the less additional information we will need to ask and the sooner the fund can process your application. This is particularly important during the summer, when the number of applications we receive increases due to lay-offs and suspensions of work.

If you are unemployed or laid off temporarily or your employment contract agrees on suspending work for the holidays, do as follows:

  1. Register as an unemployed jobseeker with the TE Office on your first day of unemployment at the latest.
  2. You will need your employment contract and payslips (palkkalaskelma) from the past six months or 26 weeks to meet the employment requirement. If you have worked on an hourly wage, ask your payroll officer for a report of weekly hours that lists your hours worked per each week. (The template for the weekly hours report can be found under the forms section ((viikkotuntiselvitys)). You can also ask the payroll officer for a wage certificate (palkkatodistus) for the past 26 weeks of work that meet the employment requirement. Holiday bonus, holiday compensation and any unpaid periods must be listed separately on the certificate. Please check if you need to send other attachments.

    If possible, we use data from the Incomes Register. However, the necessary data cannot always be found in the Incomes Register.

  3. Send the first application at the earliest after two full calendar weeks (Monday to Sunday) if you are entirely without work and are not paid wages for part-time or gig work during the application period. The final day in the application must be a Sunday or the last day of the month. 
  4. If you are receive pay for part-time or gig work during the application period, submit the application for the full calendar month.
  5. You can check Nettikassa to see when the fund has received your application. You will also see when your application is being processed. Applications cannot be rushed. We process applications in the order they arrive. After your application is taken up for processing, the case manager will ask you for any missing documents. See our website for processing times.
  6. After your first application has been processed, apply for the daily allowance in application periods of either four full calendar weeks (Monday to Sunday) or one calendar month.

Examples of how to apply:

Send your application and attachments to the fund retrospectively for the period 5 June–19 June 2022. Holiday bonus and compensation or earned income paid while you are employed full time do not affect your amount of daily allowance. Once the first application has been processed, submit the next application for the four full calendar weeks starting on 20 June 2022.

Send your application and attachments to the fund retrospectively for the period 1 June–30 June 2022. Include the payslip for wages paid in June in your application. Wages and holiday bonus and compensation from part-time work affect the adjusted allowance based on the date they are paid. Once the first application has been processed, submit the next application retrospectively for the period 1 July–31 July 2022.

Send your application to the fund retrospectively for the period 5 June–19 June 2022. Send the fund your wage certificate or payslips and employment contract for the period 7 March–4 June 2022. We already have your information for the period before 6 March 2022. Holiday bonus and compensation or earned income paid while you are employed full time do not affect your amount of daily allowance. Once the first application has been processed, submit the next application for the four full calendar weeks starting on 20 June 2022.

Send the fund an application for the period 5 June–19 June 2022 and specify in the application that you are laid off temporarily. Include the employment contract where it is agreed that work can be suspended. If you are laid off temporarily, send the fund a notice of a temporary lay-off. In necessary, also send your payroll information to the fund as instructed above. After your first application has been processed, apply for the daily allowance in periods of four full calendar weeks.

Continue applying for the allowance normally.
