I have logged into the Online Application Service but cannot find the application I submitted earlier. What do I do?

Most likely, you have logged into the online service using a different method to when you submitted the application. Applications written while logged into the service using online banking IDs will show up only while logged in with the same online banking IDs, whereas applications written while logged in with a username will show up only while using the same username. You may request to have all usernames/passwords registered to your email sent to that email address from the following page: https://apurahat.skr.fi/haku/SendPassword.aspx?kieli=eng

How do I log in to the Online Application Service?

You should primarily log in using online banking IDs. If you do not have online banking IDs from a Finnish bank, you may register and create a user ID and password by clicking the link Create username. When you have created a user ID and password, you will be able to access your application data by entering them at log in.

Applications are specific to the user IDs under which they were created. Therefore, to modify an existing application, you must log in to the Online application service with the user ID you used to create this existing application.

I have forgotten my user ID or password, or both. What should I do?

You can request a new user ID or password to replace a forgotten user ID or password at Forgotten your password or user ID?

If you do not receive the password email message within a few minutes, check that it has not gone into your spam mailbox. If you order a password several times, only the latest password received will be valid.

The text in the application is too small

The Work Plan or other information in the application may be printed in text that is too small if the space reserved for printing is insufficient. This can easily happen if the text includes, for instance, many short or blank lines. In this case, the system will reduce the text size in order to print all the contents. This may result in a text size difficult to read on paper. Make the text more compact by deleting blank lines and combining short lines. Shorten and compact the text sufficiently so that it is easy to read in preview format.

Can an application be amended after it has been sent online?

If you notice a part that needs amending after submitting your application online, you can cancel the submission, revise the application and submit it once more within the application period. This can be done with I want to withdraw my application in order to revise it and cancel application under the Application tab.

Cancelling does not delete the data in the application but changes it back to a draft so that you can amend the application. Send the application again online after amending it.
