Who needs TyEL insurance?
You need to take statutory pension insurance (TyEL) for your employees in an employment relationship if you are an employer in the private sector and
- Your employees are 17 years or older and
- Their monthly earnings are a minimum of 61.37€/month in 2021 (60.57€/month in 2020)
The TyEL insurance contribution is calculated based on the payroll sum paid by the employer to employees between the ages of 17 and 67.
In 2021, the TyEL basic contribution rate is 24.8% of the employee’s salary or wages.
In 2020, the TyEL basic contribution rate was 25.3% of the employee’s salary or wages. Due to the exceptional situation brought on by the coronavirus, however, the percentage for the employers’ pension contributions was reduced to 22.7% of the payroll for the period of 1 May–31 December 2020.
Veritas may, upon request, extend the payment period of TyEL and YEL payments.
