Mobility allowance

Mobility allowance is a cash benefit. It is intended as support when, after unemployment, you accept a job with a long commute or that requires relocation.

Typically, the mobility allowance is used for commuting between the place of residence and the place of work in Finland. However, the location of the place of work in Finland or in another country is irrelevant for eligibility. You can therefore also get a mobility allowance if you take a job abroad.

You can also receive mobility allowance for work-related training.

We can grant you mobility allowance if the conditions set for the duration of the commute, the length of the employment relationship and the right to earnings-related daily allowance are met.
