Mailing of annual letter to pension recipients has begun


Varma’s pension recipients will receive a personal letter in December or January stating the amount of their index-adjusted pension and withholding tax as of 1 January 2016. The letter will also state the total amount of the pensions that have been paid and the tax that has been withheld in 2015, as well as the pension payment dates for 2016.

The earnings-related pension index for 2016 will be the same as it was for 2015, which means there will be no increase to current pensions in January due to the index adjustment.

Every year along with the annual letter, Varma sends a residence report to be completed by our pensioners who live permanently outside of Finland. The report should be completed, signed and returned to us as soon as possible to ensure that the payment of pension is not interrupted. The residence report must be returned no later than the date indicated in the report, even if the pensioner’s circumstances have not changed from the previous year.
