I am from non-EU country and working as a software engineer for past 2 years in Finland.
Can someone please elaborate on how and when I should start the procedure with Kela to obtain maternity benefits?
I mean any procedures to be done before the birth of a child regarding maternity benefits?
What one should do after the birth of a child wrt Kela?
My company policy is that they will pay first 3 months salary during my maternity leave (not sure if it is general thing) and then have to be with Kela.
Also, am I still entitled to maternity benefits if I decide to deliver baby in homeland?
Is there a limitation that to receive maternity benefits from my work/Kela, you have to give birth in Finland?
