Obtain a tax card for pension income when your pension begins
For pensions and rehabilitation allowance, we need a tax card, which you can order from the tax authority immediately after receiving the pension decision. The card must be valid from the start of the benefit. When you have ordered a tax card, the tax authorities will submit it directly to Varma.
If we have not received your pension income tax card when your pension begins, we will have to withhold 40% tax on your pension. If the amount of your pension increases by more than 20 euros, the tax on the increase is 40%.
We will refund any excess tax withheld from your pension as soon as possible after you have received the pension income tax card from the tax authority.
How to get a new tax card
- From the MyTax service at vero.fi/omavero
- From the Finnish Tax Administration’s service number at 029 497 050 or
- from a Finnish tax office.
The Tax Administration recommends that its customers primarily use the online service. When you order a tax card, the tax authorities will send it directly to Varma.
To obtain a tax card, you are required to have:
- a pension decision
- information about your earnings at the start of the year, withholding tax and deductions.
