Entitlement to daily allowance and amount of allowance

This section provides you with information on the circumstances under which an entrepreneur is entitled to daily allowance and on how the amount of daily allowance is determined. If you are claiming daily allowance from AYT for the first time, read the check-list for the unemployed under the heading "If you become unemployed".

Familiarise yourself with the allowance calculators in the section under Calculators. When you calculate your potential daily allowance, please note that the calculators provide only an estimate, and your actual allowance is determined when your first allowance claim is processed.


If you want to calculate the AYT fund's membership fee or the amount of any allowance, you can use our calculators provided below.

You can access the AYT fund's calculators from the membership fee and entrepreneur's daily allowance links. The link for calculating requalification security allowance will take you to the website of the Federation of Unemployment Funds in Finland (TYJ).
