Report changes in your circumstances

If you get pension assistance, you must notify Kela:

  • if you start receiving another pension or compensation from Finland or from abroad or if the amount of these changes
  • if your address changes or you move abroad.

If your pensionable age under the statutory earnings-related pensions scheme is less than 65 years, you can apply for an earnings-related pension. In that case, payment of the pension assistance will be stopped. Tell Kela about your retirement.
