Varma’s electronic employee pension card to be renewed at the end of August
Our electronic employee pension card is now easier to use than before. With the implementation of new technology, the electronic card can now be used without an internet connection. The card is saved to the home screen of a mobile phone or tablet and opens from the icon without signing in. Saving the card works best with Android and iPhone phones and tablets. The electronic card functions as proof of being retired in just the same way as a traditional card sent by post. Therefore, in order to get pensioner discounts, you no longer need to carry with you a separate plastic card once the card is saved on your phone or tablet.
We recommend visiting our eServices to save the new version of the electronic employee pension card as soon as possible, especially if you are already using an electronic card saved before the end of August. The old employee pension card icon will be taken out of use at the beginning of November 2019. After that, the employee pension card can no longer be opened with the old icon. Saving the card is as handy as before. Clear instructions for saving the card can be found on the employee pension card page of our eService. The page is visible to those recipients of a pension who have the right to an employee pension card.
