Working while on a part-time pension

Your earnings may occasionally be 15% lower or higher than your personal income limit. We may have to recalculate your pension if your pay for part-time work changes significantly. If you are forced to leave your job temporarily you can ask for your pension payments to be suspended.

If the suspension does not last for more than 6 months, you can return to part-time pension. If the interruption lasts for more than 6 months, you cannot return to part-time pension, because part-time pension is no longer granted after 2016.

Payment of part-time pension ends, if

  • your earnings do not remain within the 35–70% limits
  • you return to full-time employment
  • you are absent from work for more than 6 weeks (with the exception of annual leave and sick leave)
  • your work ceases entirely.

If your earnings change significaly, the interruption lasts for more than 6 months or your work ceases entirely, please contact Varma. Send a message on the Messages and attachments service, choose subject 'Old-age pension'. This allows you to submit your case to the person responsible for your part-time pension for further processing.
