Accessibility statement

Veritas Pension Insurance endeavours to guarantee the accessibility of its website in accordance with the Act on the Provision of Digital Services and the EU Web Accessibility Directive (EU 2016/2102). The aim of accessibility is equality, which means that anyone can use the services and understand what is said therein. Despite any disabilities, an accessible online service can also be easily used with the help of different assistive devices, such as a screen reader, enlarger tool or the use of only a keyboard.

This accessibility statement applies to the www.veritas.fi website.

Conformity

  • The veritas.fi website is largely compliant with levels A and AA as required by the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1. The aim of the design and development of the website has always been the highest level of accessibility for all users.
  • We endeavour to achieve this in the following ways:
  • External accessibility experts support the developers and assess the accessibility of the services.
  • The assurance of accessibility is an integral part of the design and technical implementation of the services.
  • The accessibility of the website is reviewed regularly.

Non-accessible content

The veritas.fi website contains online forms and attachment files (pdf), some of which are not accessible. In terms of forms and attachment files that are necessary for transactions, Veritas will endeavour to renew them so as to make them accessible or to integrate them into the online service during 2020–2021.
