Instances of Kela subsidy abuse are infrequent

Kela has reported that the income register system has significantly reduced suspicions of abuse in some social benefits. In 2023, only about half of all paid benefits were suspected of abuse, despite a slight increase from the previous year. Unemployment insurance and general housing support had the most suspected cases of abuse, with basic income support being the least suspect.

Kela’s income register system is designed to monitor and detect fraudulent activities related to social benefits. Cases of suspected abuse are determined based on customer consultations and decisions made by Kela. The definition of abuse includes intentionally trying to obtain a benefit unjustifiably or more than what is legally entitled.
