This section “Findings from our research” provides information packages on our most central research themes. We want to make our research findings easily approachable and usable both by decision-makers and all persons interested in pensions and their development. The website presents key results of our research as well as links to our studies for those needing an in-depth view.

  • Disability pensions and work ability
    Working lives often end prematurely due to disability. Research on disability pensions and how work ability can be supported produces important information to improve pensions and rehabilitation.
  • Impacts of 2017 and 2005 pension reforms
    The most recent extensive pension reform came into force in 2017. The previous major pension reform was in 2005. The studies have assessed how the reforms have affected the length of working lives and the timing of retirement. 
  • Pensioners’ economic wellbeing
    The most central task of pensions is to secure adequate income in retirement. We study economic wellbeing at regular intervals both via income data and surveys.
  • Pension knowledge and trust in the pension system
    Knowing pensions and trusting the pension system is important from the point of view of the functionality and future of the pension system. Our surveys show the level of Finnish citizens’ knowledge of and trust in pensions, as well as how they have developed.
