If you become unemployed

If you have just become or are going to become unemployed, you should familiarize yourself with the subheadings in this section. Advice on unemployment is provided right from the start, ranging from registering as an unemployed jobseeker to sending the first claim. Also read the Check-list for the unemployed. There we have listed the most important points to remember when claiming daily allowance for the first time.

Please note, however, that the advice and guidelines given in this section are of general nature. For individual advice contact AYT's customer service by telephone on 09 2535 3100 or email us at asiakaspalvelu [at] ayt.fi.
