Subscription queries

The simple subscription query is meant for smaller companies and organisations that have only a few employees and that can use a query that is based on one personal identification code. Upon entering a correct personal identification code, the query will provide the following information:

  • If the person with the entered personal identification code has subscribed to the funded pension and the starting date for withholding of contributions dd.mm.yyyy,
  • If the person has submitted an application for temporary increasing of the contribution rate in 2013 and what is the amount of the person’s funded pension contribution for the years 2014-2017,
  • If the person has submitted an application for continuing the payments in 2009 and what was the amount of the person’s funded pension contribution during the years 2010-2011,
  • In 2013, the amount of payment of the persons who had subscribed to the mandatory funded pension was 2%.

If a person has submitted an application for receiving payments from the funded pension, the query will result in: The person has submitted an application for receiving payments from the funded pension, end of withholding contributions is dd.mm.yyyy.

If a person has not subscribed to the funded pension, the result of the query will be: The person has not subscribed to the funded pension.

The mass query is meant for companies and organisations with a large number of employees, where it would be too complicated for the accountant to use the simple query. Therefore the Estonian Central Securities Depository (ECSD) has developed a file format that allows the companies to send the personal identification codes of their employees to the ECSD.

The CSD performs a mass query regarding the respective personal identification codes from the register system, and returns the file to the company, with a result of the query provided after each personal identification code (similarly to the result of the simple query).

The price of the mass query is €30, no value added tax will be added to the service. One mass query can include up to 4,000 identification codes. The price for a query with more than 4,000 identification codes is subject to negotiations.

To make a query:

  • Submit a digitally signed (with ID card) application for the persons who have subscribed to the mandatory funded pension to the Estonian Central Securities Depository to fax number 6 408 801 or by post to Tartu mnt 2, 10145 Tallinn. The application form is available here: …

Application for submitting the mass query (PDF)

  • Submit the file with employees identification codes (TXT or XLS format, so that each ID-code would be on a separate line) to e-mail info@pensionikeskus.ee.

Results of the mass query:

  • Estonian CSD sends the query result as a TXT file to the e-mail address pointed in the order-form,
  • Estonian CSD sends an invoice to the company’s post address.
