TyEL insurance is statutory

You can take care of your employees’ pension cover by taking out employees’ pension insurance, i.e. TyEL insurance, for them. Pension cover is part of the Finnish social security system. That is why taking out insurance is statutory, which means it is obligatory.

We use part of the contribution you pay to cover the pensions of current pensioners and invest the rest productively and responsibly to secure the pensions of future generations.
