Do you need a TyEL certificate?
The TyEL certficate shows that you have a valid insurance policy and that your contributions have been paid. You can print out a certificate from Elo’s Online Service. A certificate may be requested, for example, as an attachment to an offer to show that the employer has insured its employees under TyEL insurance.
Brochures on contributions
TyEL insurance contributions as of 1 January 2019
From the start of 2019, Elo will retrieve the relevant earnings information from the Incomes Register and the TyEL insurance contribution will be calculated on the basis of the payroll reports and related corrections as submitted to the Incomes Register.
The amount of the TyEL insurance contribution will continue to be determined by the percentage confirmed annually by the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health.
- All contribution payments will be up to date and, therefore, there will no longer be a need to calculate a final contribution at the end of the year.
- You will continue to receive Elo’s client bonuses once per year and they will be taken into account in your future contribution payments.
- Any possible impact of the premium category and premium loss discount will be taken into account in the calculation of the contribution.
Insurance contribution interest rate as of 1 January 2019
The last day of the month following the salary payment month is the last interest-free due date for TyEL contribution payments. This is also generally the due date for TyEL invoices from Elo.
If, for example, the report was submitted late to the Incomes Register and the invoice, for this reason, falls due after the last interest-free due date, the TyEL contribution will be increased by the contribution interest rate.
Invoice due dates
