Why do I get different search results for the search terms earnings period for wages and payment date?

The earnings period for wages is voluntary information on the earnings payment report and not all payers have entered this information. Therefore, you should not use the earnings period as the only search term. The payment date, instead, is mandatory information. If you use it as the search term, the search result will be comprehensive.

Will the Incomes Register replace Kela's benefits information service Kelmu?

The Incomes Register will not replace the Kelmu service because data users will not receive information about decisions concerning benefits and pensions from the Incomes Register. Information concerning the payment of basic social assistance will also not be reported to the Incomes Register.
