Finland - Pilot project with basic income will start - January 01, 2017

Before the end of 2016 the Social Insurance Institution (Kela) will notify 2,000 randomly selected unemployed people of their participation in its basic income experiment. The pilot aims to determine whether a monthly 560-euro payment will encourage recipients to find temporary or part-time work. Once the trial begins, basic income recipients will have to give up their basic unemployment allowance or labour market subsidy. For those selected, participation in the experiment is obligatory.
