The website gives you access to the competence of our experts and their extensive experience of the Finnish earnings-related pension scheme and the role it plays in society. Our website offers information on pension security, now and in the future.

We also provide comprehensive reviews of pension security in other countries, both structurally as well as from the viewpoint of someone active in the global labour market.
