Working while on a disability pension

Your personal income limit will be stated in your pension decision.

  • While on a full disability pension, you can earn up to 40% of your previous income level without your pension being suspended or changed into a partial disability pension.
  • For partial disability pension, the income limit is 60%.

Regardless of your personal income limit, you may, however, earn 737.45 euros/month year 2017 without it affecting your pension. This earnings limit also always applies to Kela's disability pension. If you receive national pension, report your gainful employment to Kela. If you receive pension from abroad, please contact the foreign pension istitute.

If you do not know what your income limit is, you can get it from Varma at the email address tyokyvyttomyyselake@varma.fi or at our eService.
