You can join either as a fund member or a combined member. If you already are a fund member, you can upgrade your membership to combined membership any time you like.
As a fund member you belong to the Unemployment Fund YTK. If you become unemployment or you are laid off, you can apply for earnings-related daily allowance from us. You can also apply for mobility allowance as well as alternation compensation for the time of job alternation leave. Fund membership costs 118 € a year.
As a combined member you belong to both the Unemployment Fund YTK and the YTK Association. This means that in addition to unemployment security you are entitled to the member benefits and services provided by the YTK Association. As a combined member you get for example leisure time accident and legal expenses insurance, legal advice on employment relationships as well as varying member benefits. Combined membership costs altogether 137 € a year.
