What happens to the units of my pension account if I no longer live or work in Estonia?

If you have no income from salary in Estonia, the funded pension contributions to the second pillar are interrupted. The collected units will be kept at your pension account until you have reached the retirement age and based on Estonian legislation, you have the right to receive payments from the funded pension. The manner of payments depends on the total value of the pension account.

However, one must keep in mind that due to the fact that the units of the pension fund are open to investment risks, the value of the units of the pension account may decrease or increase.
