Self-employed person’s pension insurance YEL

As a self-employed person, you are responsible for your pension cover. You take care of it by taking out self-employed person’s pension insurance, i.e. YEL insurance.

What is self-employed person’s pension insurance?

YEL insurance is the basis for your pension and social security. That is why the insurance is statutory, in other words mandatory. You grow your pension with each YEL contribution you pay. At the same time, you improve your other social security benefits. You cannot replace YEL insurance with voluntary pension insurance.

The YEL calculator gives you an estimate of your pension, the level of your social security and your insurance contribution.
