Employee pension card
The trilingual employee pension card serves as proof of retirement also outside of Finland. 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. You can obtain the pension card from Varma if we have granted you:
- old-age pension
- early old-age pension
- permanent, full disability pension or
- unemployment pension.
If you are receiving partial early old-age pension, part-time pension, partial disability pension, the cash rehabilitation benefit or survivors’ pension you are not entitled to the employee pension card, since only persons with a full pension can receive the card.
You can also use the employee pension card on your mobile device
If you wish, you can also save your electronic employee pension card on your smart phone or tablet when you log in to our eServices using your personal Finnish banking codes or a mobile certificate. Once you save the employee pension card you no longer have to carry around the plastic card. You can, of course, also order a new card from our eServices if your old card has been lost or damaged.
