PENSION GENDER GAP EMPHASIZED AT BOTH ENDS OF INCOME SPECTRUM

A total of 55,000 persons retired on an old-age pension in 2015. The old-age pension of women was, on average, 1,515 euros while that of men was EUR 2.083.

The gender gap was particularly prominent in the group of new retirees receiving a monthly pension of 4,000 euros or more. Up to 80 per cent of them were men. Five per cent of all new retirees received a pension higher than 4,000 euros.

“The situation depicts the role and status of men in the Finnish working life,” says Tiina Palotie-Heino, Statistics Manager at the Finnish Centre for Pensions.

Freelancers and artist are often customers of companies offering invoicing services. These companies deduct taxes, social security contributions and its own service fees from the payments their customers receive for jobs done. Many customers of invoicing companies thus consider themselves employees rather than self-employed. Earnings-related pension legislation says differently.
