Pension payment dates 2023

We pay earnings-related pensions on the following days (when banks are open):

  • Church, Kela and Bank of Finland employee pensions are paid on the 1st day of each month.
  • Local government and wellbeing services counties pensions are paid on the 3rd day and State pensions on the 20th day of each month. If the payment day falls on a weekend or public holiday, the pension can generally be withdrawn on the previous weekday.

The payment day of earnings-related pensions cannot be moved to the previous month because the right to a pension exists on a monthly basis. Under pension legislation, earnings-related can be paid only once during each calendar month.
