When you are granted old-age pension you no longer need the services of the unemployment fund. However, retirement does not automatically end your membership at YTK, so remember to send us a written resignation notice. As our members send the resignation notices due to retirement, they often thank us for the years of membership. We really appreciate it!
What should I do when I’m about to retire?
When you retire, send us a resignation notice. Notify the start date of your retirement and we will end your membership at YTK to that day. Leftover membership fees can be returned as soon as you notify your account number.
If you are paid earnings-related daily allowance, write the date from which you have applied for pension in the application.
In order to calculate your pension, your pension insurance company needs information on the paid benefits from us. We will deliver the information electronically to the Finnish Centre for Pensions. The Finnish Centre for Pensions will transmit the information to your pension insurance company.
You can claim your old-age pension through your pension provider’s web service. If you don't know which pension provider has insured you, you can find that out at the website Työeläke.fi. https://www.tyoelake.fi/en/
If your own pension provider doesn’t have an online application service, you can claim your pension by filling out a paper form or by filling out and printing the online form (7001e).
