Confirmation of the reporting of benefits payment data

Benefits payment data can be reported to the Incomes Register as of 1 January 2021. 

Confirm the reporting of benefits payment data only if your organisation pays or reports pensions or benefits that must be reported to the Incomes Register on a benefits payment report. Do not make the confirmation just to be on the safe side.

Select Confirm that your organisation enables the functions for reporting benefits payment data. Then select Enable.

After confirmation, you can submit an application for using the technical interface, where you should indicate that the intended use of the interface is the reporting of benefits payment data on your own behalf or on behalf of another party. You organisation will also be able to use the functions for reporting benefits payment data in the e-service.

Please note that using the e-service on behalf of a company requires authorisation. If necessary, authorise the employees of your organisation, or the organisation that reports benefits payment data or its employees, in the Suomi.fi e-Authorisations service.

Who should confirm the reporting of benefits payment data?

The reporting of benefits payment data must be confirmed by the benefit payer. If the payer and report submitter are different organisations, the organisation that reports the data must also confirm the reporting of benefits payment data. Benefit payers include pension providers, insurance companies, Kela, State Treasury and municipalities, who report data on benefits paid to the Incomes Register on a benefits payment report. Read more about reporting benefits payment data.

If you are not sure whether your organisation is a benefit payer or report submitter, do not confirm the reporting of benefits payment data.

Cancelling the selection Confirmation of the reporting of benefits payment data

If your organisation wants to stop reporting benefits payment data to the Incomes Register, the functions for reporting benefits payment data must be disabled by an authorised signatory for the organisation. In addition, access rights to the interface and any authorisations granted must be cancelled separately.

Select Stop reporting benefits payment data. Then select Disable.

After disabling the selection, the organisation can no longer submit benefits payment reports. The access rights to the interface will not expire until the access rights are terminated by contacting the Incomes Register. The e-service search functions will continue to display the search criteria for benefits payment data, even after the organisation stops reporting benefits payment data.
