Employee pension card
We will send the employee pension card, which entitles the holder to pensioner discounts, by post to your home address roughly two weeks after the pension decision has been granted. The trilingual employee pension card serves as proof of retirement also outside of Finland.
You can obtain the pension card from Varma if you receive
- old-age pension
- permanent, full disability pension or
- the years-of-service pension
The card can only be granted to persons who receive a permanent full pension, so partial early old-age pension, part-time pension, partial disability pension, the cash rehabilitation benefit or survivors’ pension do not entitle you to the employee pension card.
You can also use the employee pension card on your mobile device
You can also save your electronic employee pension card on your smart phone or tablet when you log in to our online service using your personal Finnish banking codes or a mobile certificate. You can also order the conventional card from our online service if your old card has been lost or damaged.
How to use the electronic employee pension card
You can save the electronic employee pension card on your smart phone or tablet when you begin receiving pension payments. The surest way to save the electronic employee pension card is on an Android phone, iPhone or tablet as follows:
