Pension Calculation

The pension amount consists of four parts: base part, qualification period part, insurance part and joint part of the pension. These parts are added to find the pension amount.

To calculate the amount of the pension and view the available data, enter the pension calculator of the eesti.ee portal. The calculator is pre-populated with the data we have about you.

  • There is certainly data accumulated since January 1, 1999. Since then, the pension accumulation period is calculated on the basis of the social tax received from the salary, and the data reaches us automatically.

  • The calculator may not contain data on years of pensionable service until the end of 1998. It is calculated on the basis of entries in the Employment record book and, if necessary, other documents. If this box is not filled in, even though you have worked at the time, bring your Employment record book to the social security office. 

The pension calculation consists of four parts:

The pension base part

is the basis that is the same for all different pension types. Starting from April 1st, 2024, the base part is 354,9887 euros.

The pension qualification period part

depends on the time worked, studied, and served in the army until December 31st, 1998. These years are taken into consideration based on the employment records book and other documents. To find the qualification period part, the pension qualifying period collected until December 31st, 1998, shall be multiplied by the yearly rate. The yearly rate is the cost of one pension qualifying year or the insurance component. Starting from April 1st, 2024, the yearly rate is 9,512 euros.

The insurance part of the pension

depends on the sum of insurance components that are calculated since January 1st, 1999, according to the social tax paid for you. To find the insurance part, the total of the insurance components is multiplied by the yearly rate. The yearly rate is the cost of one pension qualifying year or the insurance component. 

Joint part of pension

Starting from the beginning of 2021, a fourth part – joint part – has begin accumulating.

The joint part consists of:

  • an insurance component of 50%. The size of the insurance component is calculated based on the received social tax. It is calculated in the same manner as the currently accumulated insurance component. For example, the size of the insurance component of a person earning average wages in Estonia is 1.0.
  • a solidary component of 50%. The solidary component is 1.0, if the social tax has been paid for the person on at least 12 times the minimum wages during the year. If the social tax paid for the person is less than the minimum annual wages, the solidary component shall be calculated proportionally.

Calculation of joint part: (solidary component + insurance component) ÷ 2 = joint part of pension

These parts are added to find the pension amount.
