Tax tips and a new calculator
We have added a new feature to our daily allowance calculator. You can now calculate an estimate on the amount of daily allowance for the entire unemployment or lay-off period. You can then use that information when you request a new tax card from the Tax Administration.
How is the rest of the year looking work-wise? How are our members doing? Find out from our latest member survey!
We ran a second Jäsenpulssi survey at the end of August to find out about our members’ work and financial situation, their mood and thoughts about the future. We also asked our members to share their views on the coronavirus situation, the calls for universal earnings-related unemployment security that have grown louder over the summer, as well as our performance. Take a look at the answers!
Terminating a prolonged, indefinite lay-off
Some of the lay-offs that started in spring have continued for a long time. If you have been laid off for long, you can terminate your employment relationship without losing your right to receive pay for the period of notice. You will not, however, be entitled to earnings-related daily allowance for the same period.
Avoid common pitfalls when your employment ends during lay-off
As we are moving towards autumn, we have been informed that many employer-employee negotiations will take place. It is possible that lay-offs will turn into dismissals. If any such changes happen to you, you should always remember to notify the payer of your unemployment benefit.
Our members are satisfied

Despite the congestion of applications during the spring and summer our members are satisfied with the service they have received. This is shown by extensive member surveys. The survey carried out in May–June was answered by 21,715 respondents and the one carried out in August by 8,190 respondents.
