Agreements on Netbank viewing rights will end on 1 December 2022

Tax refund payment dates 

30 June 2022  In 2022, tax refunds will be paid on 4 July, 3 August, 5 September, 3 October, 5 November or 5 December. You can see the date of your tax refund on your tax decision.  

Tax refund paid to your account

The tax refunds are paid into your bank account if the Tax Administration knows your valid account number. If you can’t see the refund on your account, we recommend checking your account again later, as the payments are made on that day and it may take a while for them to come through. Your tax refund payment date may have also been postponed if you supplemented your tax declaration after the initial decision, for example. Read more on the vero.fi websiteOpens new window

Tax refund paid through a money order

If you haven’t provided your account number to the Tax Administration, you will receive a money order for your tax refund. Tax refunds paid through money orders also have different payment dates. Once you have received a notification of a money order, you can cash your tax refund using several alternative means. Read the instructions about cashing money orders and the fees for the various alternatives.

Even the best services need upkeep – scheduled maintenance on 12 June

6 June 2022  We are carrying out essential maintenance on our systems this coming weekend to ensure you will continue to have high-quality services available to you. Every bank is required by the supervisory authorities to perform routine maintenance.

The maintenance break will start around midnight between Saturday 11 June and Sunday 12 June and end by noon on Sunday. Banking services, such as Nordea Mobile and Netbank, will be unavailable during the break. 

You can pay with cards as normal, but you may experience some slowness. Card payments will not succeed online if the online store requires authentication with Nordea ID or the code calculator. You can withdraw cash at Nosto ATMs, and the card blocking service will function normally on 020 333.

We are making every effort to carry out essential maintenance at night on weekends so that it will have as small an impact on your banking as possible.

You can prepare for the service break by doing your daily banking and any business requiring electronic identification before the break starts. If you are travelling, we recommend that you pay your hotel bill already before Sunday.

We understand that the maintenance can be an inconvenience and we kindly ask for your patience.

Short breaks expected in our banking services on the weekend – card payments unaffected 

Update on 22 May 2022, at 15:40  There may still be temporary service breaks affecting Siirto payments and Nordea Wallet. We will make every effort to get our services working again as soon as possible. 

You’ll be able to pay with cards, withdraw cash from ATMs and use our card blocking service as usual.

We understand that even short breaks can cause inconvenience. We apologise for this and kindly ask for your patience.

---

20 May 2022  We will be doing technical maintenance of our banking services over the weekend. There may be temporary service breaks between 20.00 on Saturday and 15.00 on Sunday affecting

  • online and mobile banking for personal and corporate customers
  • electronic identification
  • online payments and Siirto payments.

If you find a service is unavailable, please try again later. You’ll be able to pay with cards, withdraw cash from ATMs and use our card blocking service as usual.

All technical systems, services and devices require regular maintenance, and as a bank, we have supervisory authorities who also set us requirements in this area. To fulfil the requirements, we will carry out maintenance of our IT systems for banking services this weekend according to our planned timetable. Since the maintenance will cause some short breaks in our banking services, we will conduct it at night and over the weekend to ensure our customers are affected as little as possible.

You can prepare for the service breaks by doing your daily banking and any business requiring electronic identification before the breaks start.

We will carry out maintenance work on our digital services in the early hours of Sunday

6 May 2022  To ensure the best digital services for our customers, we will carry out maintenance work on Sunday 8 May from 1.00 am until 5.00 am.

During the maintenance, electronic identification will not work and you won’t be able to log into services.

Card payments at stores and cash withdrawals from ATMs and at store checkouts will work normally, as will the card blocking service.

You can prepare for the maintenance break by doing your daily banking and any business requiring electronic identification before the break starts.

We maintain our systems regularly and carry out the work at night so as to cause as little disturbance as possible to our customers. We understand that the maintenance can be an inconvenience and we kindly ask for your patience.

Nordea’s services are running as normal after having been disrupted to some extent by a denial-of-service attack

Updated on 3 March 2022 (published on 1 March 2022) The denial-of-service attack caused some slowness in logins to Nordea's mobile and online banking services. Customers are now able to log in to the services as normal.

We will continue to secure our services.

We apologise for any inconvenience our customers may have experienced.

Is there reason to be concerned about the situation?

There is no need to worry. Customer data or assets have not been compromised. Some customers have had difficulty logging in to the services.

What is a denial-of-service attack?

A denial-of-service attack is a cyber attack that aims to prevent the intended use of a service. This is usually accomplished by overwhelming the targeted service with requests until normal traffic can no longer be processed.

What caused the denial-of-service attack?

Investigation is still in progress. We take this investigation very seriously and will find out what caused this.

Nordea Electron cards replaced by Nordea Debit cards

9 February 2022: Visa Electron, a product of the international card company Visa, will be discontinued in 2024. This means that if you have a Nordea Electron card, we will automatically replace it with a Nordea Debit card when your card expires or you need to renew your card. You will no longer be able to pay with a Visa Electron card after April 2024.

Nordea Debit includes the same features as your Nordea Electron card. The only difference is the card’s name and design.

Your card will be replaced automatically so you don’t need to do anything.
