Students whose income for 2018 exceeds a specified annual limit can voluntarily return overpaid study grant and student housing supplement payments. The annual income limit and the voluntary repayment provision do not apply to the general housing allowance. Overpaid financial aid must be paid back by Friday, 31 May 2019.
If overpaid financial aid is not returned in time, it is collected back at 7.5% interest.
Voluntary repayments of financial aid can be made through Kela's online customer service.
Kela.fi, opens in new tab: Return overpaid financial aid by the end of May (7.5.2019)
