To see for which invoices the bonuses have been used, log in to the online service and retrieve a statement.

However, the TyEL insurance contribution percentage was reduced by 2.6 percentage points due to the Covoid-19 pandemic that broke out last spring. The reduction concerned TyEL contributions collected on wages and salaries paid between May and December 2020.

That means that the spring 2021 client bonus is a third of its normal level. The amount of client bonuses decreases regardless of how long the insurance was in force in 2020.
