Amount of pension

Earnings-related pension accrues on work and salary

What does your pension consist of?

Your earnings-related pension is affected by

  • annual earned income or, if your are self-employed, your YEL income 
  • certain unpaid periods and
  • the life expectancy coefficient

If your earnings are at least €58.27/month in 2018 (€58.19/month in 2017), your employer has to insure you. Self-employed activities need to be insured if they continue for at least 4 months and the earned income is at least EUR 7,656.26/year in 2018.

Check your earnings-related pension record annually to make sure your earnings information is up to date. On our eServices, you can check your information when it suits you. Information from the previous year may be added until 31 Mar, so it's a good idea to check the record in April. Check your pension record.

Pension record

Why is the earnings-related pension record being sent by post?

In autumn 2018, we will send earnings-related pension records by post to those who have not checked their pension-related salary information online. It is a good idea to check the record every year.

Pension calculator instructions

With this calculator you can calculate an estimate of your partial old-age pension. The lower age limit will initially be 61, and it will rise gradually to the extent that general life expectancy increases.

Partial old-age pension will be either 25 or 50 per cent of the pension that you have accrued until the end of the year before the year in which your partial retirement begins. The pension will be reduced by 0.4 per cent permanently for each month that you draw the pension before you reach the lowest age limit for old-age pension. The estimate is based on the information you enter. The calculator cannot be used to estimate your pension if you are already receiving pension or other social security benefit. The final amount of your pension may deviate from the estimate calculated here.

Widow(er)'s pension may decrease spouse's pension

Note! When calculating spouse's pension use only amounts of employment pensions. National pension is not included.
If the spouses are not yet pensioners, the disability pension’s amount is used to calculate the survivor’s pension. 

The spouse’s pension may be decreased, if

  • there are no under-aged children
  • spouse’s pension has been granted based on a death that has occurred on 1 July 1990 or later. 

When is spouse’s pension decreased?

  • The widow(er is over the age of 65 or retired > The decrease is made as soon as the survivors' pension begins
  • The widow(er) is under 65 and has not retired > First, half of the pension of the deceased, then deduction after 6 months 
  • The youngest child turns 18 > The decrease is made from the beginning of the month that follows the child’s birthday
  • The widow(er) is granted employment pension > The decrease is made again based on the widow(er)’s actual pension
