Half of 500 pensioners born in 1935, who were surveyed by Ilmarinen Mutual Pension Insurance Company, revealed that the amount of pension they receive is adequate for their living.
The surveyed group received at least 1,400 euros a month in pension, but greatly varied in terms of gender and place of residence.
Pension received by men are on average higher as well as for pensioners residing in the capital city region.
For instance, in Eastern Finland, two in three pensioners earned less than 1,400 euros a month.
According to the survey, seventy percent of the 80-year-old pensioners were satisfied with their lives. Many regarded themselves prudent with money, health and social. Only eleven percent of the respondents said they felt lonely.
The survey revealed that the official retirement age of people born in 1935 was 65, but some retired at 60 years or even at 55 years. On average, the current 80-year-old pensioners retired at 60 years of age.
Only 30,000 out of approximately 70,000 Finns who were born in 1935 are alive. Of this figure, men are 12,000 while the population of women is 18,000.
The survey was carried in October-December 2014 and interviewed 500 pensioners born in 1935 over the phone. The telephone interview was carried out by Norstat.
