Transfer your YEL insurance policy to Veritas!

You can give notice to cancel your YEL insurance policy on the last day of March, June, September or December, but you can send us the transfer application whenever you want. The transferred policy will be effective at Veritas three months after the notice. For example, a policy that is cancelled on 30 June will become effective at Veritas on 1 October.

The termination of your previous YEL policy simply requires that you complete the YEL transfer application form. The policy must, however, have been valid for a minimum of one year before you can transfer it to us.

We will handle the process of terminating the old policy with the previous company as soon as we have received your application.

The cost of YEL insurance is the same across the board, but not all insurers are the same. At Veritas, you will receive the best pension insurance service in Finland.

We welcome you to join us!

YEL income

Your social security is based on the income confirmed for your YEL insurance. The amount of YEL income should be based on the value of your work input, not on your actual pay or the company’s turnover. A good rule for determining the value of your work input is to think of the salary that would be paid to an employee with the same professional experience as you have.

Year 2022 a minimum of 8.261,71 € per year and a maximum of 187.625,00 € per year.

Year 2023 a minimum of 8.575,45 € per year and a maximum of 194.750,00 € per year.

Social security throughout your life

Life is unpredictable, so do not make any compromises when it comes to what matters most; namely, the social security of your family and yourself.

Your YEL insurance guarantees an income in case you fall ill or become disabled or unemployed. But it also plays a role in terms of positive events during your life, such as parental leaves and retirement with old-age pension.

Do I need a YEL-insurance even though I am not paying myself any wages?

YEL-insurance is based on your amount of work, and that is why you need to get an YEL-insurance even if you are not paying yourself any salary. Please contact us if you are considering the level of your YEL-income.

Are you thinking of retiring?

As an entrepreneur, your pension is calculated on the basis of your earnings under YEL insurance. The best way to ensure the right level of pension is to ensure that the YEL income stated in your insurance corresponds to the value of your work input for the entire duration of your entrepreneurial activities. Changes that occur close to your pensionable age will not have a significant impact on your pension.

As an entrepreneur, you can continue your entrepreneurial activities while receiving old-age pension, but as the obligation to insure under YEL will have ended and you will no longer have to pay YEL insurance contributions. You can, however, opt to take voluntary YEL insurance and continue to accrue further pension for yourself.
