If you are living abroad permanently, you must annually confirm to us your information using the residence report, in order for you to continue receiving pension payments from us. We will send you a residence report only if we do not automatically receive your information from authorities. If we send you a residence report to fill out in December, please fill in the residence report and send it back to us by the due date, even if your circumstances have not changed. Alternatively, you can confirm your information on our eServices, provided that you have personal Finnish banking codes or a mobile certificate required for logging in to our service. By doing so you can speed up the handling of the residence report.
We use the form to verify the information of our pension recipients living abroad in order to avoid making undue pension payments. According to the Employees Pensions Act (TyEL section 113, paragraph 2): If the pension provider has reason to suspect that the pension recipient no longer meets the entitlement criteria for the pension, the pension provider may suspend the payment of the pension. We will thus suspend the payment of pension if we do not receive your residence report by the due date. We will resume the payment of pension as soon as we receive your residence report.
