Restructuring protection allowance

If you satisfy the eligibility criteria for the new restructuring protection package, you are entitled to a restructuring protection allowance. You do not have to be unemployed to qualify for a restructuring protection allowance. You can be paid a restructuring protection allowance even if you find work with a new employer straight away.

The restructuring protection allowance is equivalent to one month’s salary. Members of unemployment funds apply for the allowance through their unemployment fund, and others apply for it from Kela. The amount of the allowance is the same regardless of whether it is paid by an unemployment fund or Kela.
