Information about AYT

We are an independent unemployment fund for all full-time entrepreneurs residing permanently in Finland. We were founded in 1995 when legislation allowed the establishment of an employment fund for entrepreneurs.

Our basic task is to pay unemployment allowance to unemployed members of the fund. In addition to daily allowance payment, we actively participate in improving security for entrepreneurs and provide information on unemployment security for the self-employed. We are also involved in a number of training courses for those considering self-employment and for beginner entrepreneurs throughout the country.

This section contains AYT's contact information and hours of business as well as answers to the most frequently asked questions about the fund's organisation.
