When can I retire?
There is no longer a single age at which people can retire on old-age pension. Instead, every age group has their own retirement age.
You can retire on old-age pension after reaching the lowest retirement age. The personal retirement age that may apply to you can be higher than the lowest retirement age. In some occupations, occupational retirement ages that are lower than the lowest retirement age for the age group may also apply.

- You can check your own retirement age in the online service My Pension (available in Finnish and in Swedish).
It pays to keep working
As you approach retirement age, you should consider how retirement will affect your life and also discuss the matter with your employer.
You do not have to retire once you reach your personal retirement age. You can keep on working and accrue more pension. Discuss your choice of retirement or continued employment with your employer.
The calculators in the online service My Pension let you estimate the effect of continuing at work on the amount of your pension.
