[22/05/2013] Finnish Society of Social Rights has lodged a complaint against Finland, Complaint No. 88/2012, registered on 13 December 2012.

It alleges that the minimum level of several social security benefits is below the requirements of the Charter. This concerns the following benefits: sickness, maternity and rehabilitation allowances; basic unemployment allowance and labour market subsidy; study grant; guarantee pension and social assistance.

On 14 May 2013, the European Committee of Social Rights declared the complaint admissible.
