When public sector employees have served out their careers, it is our job to see that they have a well-earned pension waiting for them.
Keva is Finland’s largest pension provider and it administers the pensions of local government, State, Evangelical Lutheran Church and Kela employees. Keva aims to improve well-being at work, enhance work ability of the employees, increase productivity and decrease costs from incapacity to work by providing services to employers in the public sector.
Our 530-strong staff serve a total of 1.2 million public sector employees and pensioners as well as some 2,000 employer customers, i.e. local government organisations, State employers and parish unions.
We are responsible for funding the pensions of local government employees and for investing their pension funds. Pensions are funded with pension contributions collected from employers and employees alike.
Keva is an independent body governed by public law and its operations are based on the Public Sector Pensions Act and the Keva Act. Keva is supervised by the Ministry of Finance, the Financial Supervisory Authority and the National Audit Office of Finland.
Known earlier as the Local Government Pensions Institution, we have operated under the name of Keva since 1 January 2011.Act on Keva.pdf (102 kb)
