Description

The statistics on pension recipients in Finland offer a comprehensive picture of retirement and transition to retirement in Finland. The Finnish pension system is comprised, broadly, of two statutory schemes which provide, respectively, national pensions and earnings-related pensions.

The national pension scheme is administered by Kela. The earnings-related pension scheme is administered by private-sector earnings-related pension providers, funds and foundations and by public-sector pension providers. The Finnish Centre for Pensions coordinates the earnings-related pension system and collects data required for the administration of the system in its central register. Pensions payable under motor insurance and employment accident plans and under the Military Injuries Act and the Act Concerning Injuries Sustained in Military Service (referred to collectively by the Finnish acronym SOLITA) are also part of the Finnish statutory pension system.
