Pensions from Abroad
The Finnish Centre for Pensions acts as the liaison body when a person residing in Finland claims a pension from an EU/EEA country, Great Britain, Switzerland or a social security agreement country (Australia, Canada, Chile, India, Israel, Japan, Quebeck, South Korea and the United States).
We are in charge of handling claims for a pension from abroad and participate in the related exchange of information between the foreign and Finnish pension providers and Kela. We transmit the pension claim and other data required for a pension decision to the EU/EEA countries and social security countries (as well as to Great Britain and Switzerland) that the claimant has been insured in and from which they claim a pension.
Instructions on claiming a pension from abroad
Claim a pension from abroad with the same form as you claim a pension from Finland. You can submit your claim online via the website of most earnings-related pension providers. Go to Työeläke.fi for more detailed instructions on how to claim a pension from abroad.
