Instructions and recommendations for VerNet online service

Registration and login

As a customer of Veritas Pension Insurance, you can use our online service safely and securely. 

When you receive a pension or a benefit from Veritas, the online service is automatically activated for you - log in to notify of a changed bank account number, or if you have been granted vocational rehabilitation, to claim for compensation for travel expenses.

Employers: submit your VerNet online service agreement here (link in Finnish). The user included in the agreement will receive, via e-mail, instructions on how to start using the service. 

Entrepreneurs: You can start using the VerNet online service once your insurance at Veritas enters into effect. Log in at vernet.veritas.fi. Would you like someone else to manage your earnings-related pension matters? To inform us of other users and their access rights, send a message via VerNet or include the users’ names in your VerNet online service agreement (link in Finnish). In addition to providing access to our working capacity maintenance services, you can authorise other users to view and update information concerning your insurance policy as well. 

VerNet access rights are specific to each person and insurance policy. The access rights allow the user to view confidential information. So be careful not to disclose your login codes to any unauthorised persons. Do not keep all of the codes in the same location.

Logging in to VerNet for the first time

To log in to the VerNet service, you need to use the personal link you received via e-mail. Entrepreneurs can log in directly at vernet.veritas.fi.

To log in to VerNet, use your personal banking codes, a mobile certificate or certificate card. When logging in for the first time, you will be asked to check and confirm your personal information. 

The VerNet service applies the Suomi.fi e-Identification service for user identification. More information on the Suomi.fi e-Identification service.

Logging in to VerNet after the initial registration

Log in to the VerNet service at vernet.veritas.fi. To log in to VerNet, use your personal banking codes, a mobile certificate or certificate card. 

Mobile app deployment

You can download the Veritas mobile applikation from the AppStore and Google Play app store. The application works on your smartphone and tablet. You can quickly sign in with your fingerprint, face recognition or your own PIN code, depending on your phone and what method you prefer! The first login requires strong identification with your personal bank codes, mobile certificate or certificate card. For security reasons, the application requires strong authentication approximately once a year, the application is available on up to three different devices for the same user.

If you loose your mobile device you can do it yourself or ask Veritas to remove the mobile authentication associated with your account from your VerNet web service user information, so that a third party cannot get access to your VerNet data on your device. Note! If you loose your mobile device, we recommend you to follow the instructions on the Android or iSO operating system pages, https://support.google.com and https://support.apple.com.

Please note that you are responsible for any use of the service under your username.

Foreign VerNet users

The Suomi.fi e-Identification used in the VerNet service currently does not support the logging in of foreign persons. The functionality enabling foreign users to log in will be added to the Suomi.fi identification service by the end of 2019. As Veritas is not an authority (such as the Incomes Register), we cannot provide our customers with the possibility to use a Katso-ID for login during the transition period.

If you do not have a Finnish personal identity number or access to personal banking codes, a mobile certificate or certificate card, please contact your personal insurance adviser for assistance.

Removal and changes of access rights 

Only the customer him/herself can log in to the Veritas online service for insured customers.

To the VerNet online service for entrepreneurs and employers, access rights can be given to multiple users. Make sure to inform Veritas immediately, in writing, if a user's employment relationship ends or the user no longer has the right to use VerNet for some other reason. This is essential because the VerNet service contains confidential personal and earnings information. Veritas shall be informed about any such changes in writing, for example, by sending a message via VerNet. Also remember to inform us of any new users.

For each user, you must give a personal e-mail address. For data security reasons, access rights cannot be linked to an e-mail address that is being used by several individuals, for example, info@company.fi. Never disclose your own user codes to anyone else.

For data security reasons, we cannot accept information sent by e-mail or given on the phone. It is not possible for us to verify the identity of the person speaking on the phone, and it is not recommended to send personal information unprotected through e-mail.

Encryption

VerNet data connections and communications are protected by SSL encryption. Encryption is indicated by a padlock or equivalent icon in the top or bottom bar of your browser.

Session and logout

Remember to log out when exiting VerNet. For data security reasons, we recommend that you clear the browser cache and close the browser.

While logged into the Incomes Register, there is no need for you to separately log in to the Vernet service. Correspondingly, if you are logged into VerNet to view any information related to your earnings-related pension insurance, you will not need to log in separately to the Incomes Register. This requires that you have a Suomi.fi identification session open in your browser at the same time.

Payment transmission 

You can pay your insurance contributions via your online banking service. Select your bank and log in to the online service by using your personal banking codes. Payments are transmitted by Paytrail Plc. Paytrail Plc is a licensed payment institution authorised by the Finnish Financial Supervisory Authority.

VerNet also supports the following browsers: Edge, Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. VerNet is optimised for Google Chrome and, especially in the visual appearance, anomalies may occur when using other browsers.
