How will Finnish Pensions be Working in the Future?

  • Simo Forss


Statutory pensions in Finland comprise employment pensions and the national pension. The purpose of the national pension is to guarantee an adequate minimum income for all pensioners. Entitlement to the national pension is based on residence. The purpose of employment pension is to guarantee that the level of consumption attained by employees and the self-employed during their active working career is maintained. The target, or maximum amount, of the pension represents 60% of the wage, and it is accrued over a 40-year-period.
