Ilmarinen’s administrative cost will decrease 20% in 2024 – As our customer, you benefit right away!

At the start of next year, Ilmarinen’s administrative cost will decrease by roughly 20 per cent. The administrative cost is part of the TyEL insurance contribution, and in that respect, your TyEL contribution will decrease.

The price of earnings-related pension insurance is influenced by the sector’s common TyEL contribution as well as, among other things, company-specific contribution components. These consist of the administrative cost, which affects the monthly earnings-related pension contribution, and the client bonus, which is returned to customers annually.

The total contribution level for 2024 is not yet known. The Ministry of Social Affairs and Health will confirm the basic TyEL contribution in mid-November. We will provide news and information about next year’s contributions once they have been confirmed.

As Ilmarinen’s customer, you will continue to benefit from our efficiency and solvency – part of our good result belongs to our customers, i.e. our owners.

What is the administrative cost?

As of the start of 2023, the administrative cost has been determined on a company-specific basis. The administrative cost is the part of the pension contribution that is used to cover a pension company’s operating costs. It has a rather modest impact on the earnings-related pension contribution. For Ilmarinen’s customers in 2024, it will be no more than 0.20 per cent of the payroll.

Previously, any surplus administrative costs were returned to customers the following year as part of client bonuses. In future, since each pension insurance company will collect only the required amount of administrative costs, no systematic surplus will arise. Therefore, in 2024, client bonuses will be determined solely on the basis of solvency capital and will decrease in all pension insurance companies correspondingly.

And what about solvency capital?

One per cent of a pension company’s solvency capital is credited to customers. Client bonuses have accrued under the new model since 2023 and will be credited to customers’ pension contributions in 2024. 

Ilmarinen’s strong solvency is the result of long-term investment operations and good investment returns. Ilmarinen’s investment returns increased to 3.7 per cent in the first half of the year. The company’s solvency strengthened and cost-effectiveness continued to improve despite the high inflation and uncertain economic development.
