Around half of pensioners in Finland who retired in the past few years would like to continue working, according to a survey by the Centre for Finnish Pensions.

The survey found that a third of those who retired between 2019 and 2021 are working or have worked while claiming their pension.

Many continued working for the same employer as during their careers. Their work tended to be casual and irregular.

Men were more likely than women to work after retirement, according to the survey.

The most common reason for working after retirement was interest in their jobs and maintaining social contacts with colleagues, but a third of respondents said their interest in paid employment stemmed from financial pressures.

Around half of respondents said they did not want to work while claiming a pension, as they wanted to enjoy their retirement.

The centre’s survey was answered by some 3,400 pensioners who retired in 2019-2021.
