Ilmarinen - For a better life

Our task is to ensure that our customers receive the pension they earned from employment. We also seek to improve working life and thus help our customers succeed.

Ilmarinen is an employment pension company. The term illustrates what we offer: insurance and pensions linked to work. 

Employees and entrepreneurs

When you take out insurance with us, the choice is simple. We offer just two types of insurance: employee’s and self-employed person’s earnings-related pension insurance, i.e. TyEL and YEL insurance. In addition, we offer a multitude of other services. Each of them is aimed at ensuring your well-being.

TyEL insurance is taken out by entrepreneurs for their employees while YEL insurance is taken out by the self-employed persons for themselves. We have more than 600 000 insured and we pay out pensions to almost a half million people. More than 70,000 self-employed persons have entrusted their insurance matters into our hands. In total, we are responsible for the pension cover of more than 1.1 million people.

Securing investment assets

We invest pension assets productively, securely and responsibly. Our more than EUR 45 billion in investment assets guarantees that you and other Finns will receive your pensions, whatever the times. We use a buffer as added security to maintain our solvency even in the worst market storms.

Ilmarinen is and endures. For you.
