This is Keva

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. And if their career happens to be cut short, we make sure they have an adequate income.

Keva is Finland’s largest pension provider and it administers the pensions of local government, State, Evangelical Lutheran Church and Kela employees.

Our 550-strong staff serve a total of 1.3 million public sector employees and pensioners as well as some 2,300 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. Our services to employers outside local government cover only the payment of pensions.

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.
