Now is a good time to set up e-Authorizations, as it will enable the use the services of Kela, the Finnish Tax Administration, the Incomes Register and other authorities also after the Katso service has been discontinued.

In January 2021, it will no longer be possible to use the Katso ID for identification and the roles and authorisations in the Katso service will no longer be valid.
