you don't do that what TE Toimisto wants you to do? I have been talking with a finnish friend about this and she also doesn't know for sure. She says that legally they actually have to help if you don't have enough money and when TE Toimisto cuts the unemployment benefits, but is this really true?

Social assistance can only be lowered - not cut away completely.

But when someone gets unemployment benfits, they don't get social assistance anymore. :?: So if someone says no to something that TE Toimisto wants, they will remove the unemployment benefits...right? So what then? How to survive after that for weeks?

Getting unemployment benefits doesn't automatically meant that one is ineligible for social assistance.

Most likely one gets more social assistance. I suggest you read the relevant Kela pages.
