Customer Service

Do you need information about your own pension? We help you with earnings-related pension matters, such as how to insure work abroad, how to apply for a pension from abroad and insurance surveillance issues.

If your question concerns earnings-related pensions from Finland, primarily contact your own earnings-related pension provider.
