TyEL contributions and certificates

As an employer, you take care of employees’ pension security by paying TyEL contributions to the employment pension company. The TyEL contribution is determined in the same way in all pension insurance companies according to the criteria ratified by the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health and is a specific percentage of the employee’s gross earnings. 

TyEL contribution for 2024

For a contract employer the TyEL basic contribution for 2024 is 25.12 % of the TyEL payroll. Elo’s basic expense loading fee is added to the TyEL basic contribution. The insurance contribution is reduced by a possible client bonus and Elo’s discounts. The TyEL contribution is calculated from the payroll data reported to the Incomes Register. The employment pension company invoices the whole contribution from the employer, who in turn will deduct the employee share of the contribution from each employee’s wages or salary.

In 2024, the employee’s share of the contribution is:

7.15 % for those under 53 years of age,
8.65 % for those aged 53–62 years and
7.15 % for those who have turned 63.

If your company’s payroll sum was over EUR 2,251,500 in 2022, you are considered a large-scale employer.

For an occasional employer the contribution is 26.12 %.

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.

Do you need a payment extension for your invoice?

If you are unable to pay your TyEL invoice before the due date, we highly recommend you to request a payment extension in advance.

  • As long as you have submitted your Incomes Register reports on time and applied for a payment extension for your TyEL invoice before the due date, you can get  a one-month extension at the insurance contribution interest rate of 4.10%, which is valid between 1 January–30 June 2024.
  • If you apply for a payment extension after the due date or need a longer extension, we will charge the standard statutory penalty interest rate, which is 12.50% between 1 January–30 June 2024.
  • Another reason why it is wise to ask for a payment request in advance is that we charge an additional 10 euro for every TyEL invoice reminder we send. 
  • The most convenient way to apply for the payment extension is through Elo’s Online Service.


TyEL contribution payment methods

You can pay TyEL contributions in two ways:

1. Monthly invoice
You will receive an invoice once a month for all reports of the same salary payment month. Even if you paid salaries three times a month, for example, the information of all three salary payments is compiled into a single invoice.

2. Invoice for each payroll report separately
You will receive an invoice for each payroll salary report separately. This means that you will receive as many invoices as you have salary payment reports.

The default payment method is automatically an invoice once a month, and you can change the payment method through Elo’s online service.

Due date of the TyEL contribution and insurance contribution interest

General / Default image alt attribute
When you issue a payroll report to the Incomes Register in time, the due date of the TyEL contribution will be the last day of the month following the salary payment month. Insurance contribution interest is paid for payments falling due after that. The insurance contribution interest is 3.85 % 1.7-31.12.2023 and 4.10 % 1.1-30.6.2024.

Take electronic invoices into use

We recommend that you take electronic invoices into use so that you can pay insurance contributions quickly and easily.

You can receive invoices electronically to:

• your company’s invoice handling system or web bank
• the e-mail address you have given or to
• Posti’s OmaPosti service.
In addition, private customers can receive an electronic invoice in their web bank.
