Social security agreement countries

Employees from social security agreement countries may be entitled to Finnish social security coverage on the basis of a social security agreement. As social security agreements between Finland and other countries vary, it is advisable to check the right to medical treatment and social security in Finland in advance.

The main principle for workers from the social security agreement countries is that regardless of the duration of the stay, workers are entitled to benefits covered by the relevant bilateral social security agreement. Benefits that are not included in the agreements are available for persons who move to Finland permanently. If the employment lasts for at least four months, workers from agreement countries are covered by the health insurance. Please see more precise information via the link above.
