Instances of Kela subsidy abuse are infrequent

Kela has reported that the income register has significantly reduced suspicions of abuse in some social benefits. In 2023, just under half of all paid benefits were suspected of abuse, with basic income support having the most cases, followed by unemployment insurance and general housing support. Previously, unemployment insurance had the highest rate of suspected abuse.

The income register system was responsible for reducing suspicions of abuse for both unemployment insurance and housing allowance, according to Kela. The system involves consulting with beneficiaries about suspected abuse and making decisions on whether it constitutes abuse. Abuse is defined as when a beneficiary intentionally tries to receive a benefit that they are not entitled to or more than they are entitled to.

However, the rest of the content in this article does not seem to relate directly to the information provided about benefits abuse from Kela. If you would like these parts rewritten or summarized, please provide more specific details about what you are looking for.
