A remark on submitting the tax cards
The income-tax card sent by the tax authorities in the beginning of the year do not need to be sent to IAET-kassa. However, if you have obtained a revised tax card, you must send it to IAET-kassa via eAsiointi yourself.
Summary of changes in unemployment security at the turn of the year
As of 1 January 2017, changes have been implemented in unemployment security that affect everyone receiving an earnings-related allowance. The changes are based on legislative changes and index adjustments.
The amount of daily allowance and increased components decrease on 1.1.2017
The earnings-related allowance and increased components will be decreased at the turn of the year. The decrease will apply to all applicants of daily allowance due to national pension index being cut and the legislative changes.
Check your eligibility to mobility allowance
The unemployment funds start paying out a new benefit called mobility allowance. Please inspect your entitlement to mobility allowance in case you receive a job with a travelling time of over 3 hours (full-time employment) or 2 hours (part-time employment) per day.
Inform your union about your unemployment
If you are a member of a trade union, we recommend you to notify your own trade union of your unemployment. Then you can capitalize on the potential benefits addressed to the unemployed, such as a discount in your union membership fees.
