Entrepreneurship in unemployment security

YTK is an unemployment fund for employees. Entrepreneurs can insure themselves for unemployment in a fund for entrepreneurs. There are two funds meant for entrepreneurs in Finland: Suomen yrittäjäin työttömyyskassa, (SYT, Finland's entrepreneurs' unemployment fund),  and Ammatinharjoittajien ja Yrittäjien työttömyyskassa (AYT, self-employed persons' and entrepreneurs' unemployment fund).Under unemployment security, a person would be considered an entrepreneur when they work for income without employment relationship or office.

A member of an employee’s fund has no right for earnings-related daily allowance, if they are considered full-time entrepreneurs. The decision is always made by the Employment and Economic Development Offices. A person, who has started entrepreneurship, can however decide for 18 months whether to belong to an employee’s or to an entrepreneur’s fund. A part-time entrepreneur can receive adjusted earnings-related daily allowance, when the EED Offices have inspected the entrepreneurship and found it part-time in its statement.
