Sickness fund membership is voluntary and it must be applied for within three (3) months of the beginning of the employment relationship.
A person applying for membership using the membership application form gives his/her consent to his/her membership information being communicated to the employer and to his/her membership information being saved in the sickness fund’s additional benefits programme.
A person applying for membership using the membership application form authorises the employer to collect the sickness fund membership fee from his/her salary and to remit it to the sickness fund monthly, and to inform the sickness fund of the collection of the membership fee and its amount.
Changing and updating the above-mentioned information (address information, account numbers, etc.) is the member’s responsibility.
The rules of the sickness fund may change during the membership based on rule amendments adopted by the General Fund Meeting. Information on changes to the rules can be found under “Ajankohtaista”/ “News” on this website. It is the member’s responsibility to monitor any changes to the rules.
