YTK members clearly more satisfied with their unemployment fund than average

General Unemployment Fund YTK received, once again, top reviews in a brand survey conducted by the market research company Taloustutkimus Oy at the end of 2021. On average, YTK members are more satisfied with their choice and do not even consider switching. The members’ spontaneous impressions of YTK include affordability, transparency and reliability. We also receive a lot of direct feedback from our members and that makes us happy! Here are some recent ones:

“It has been a pleasure to deal with you, thanks to your flexibility and friendly customer service. Whenever I have needed help or advice, your advice and guidance have been easy to understand.”

“A big thank you to everyone at YTK! Without your help, I would not have made it after a surprise lay-off.”

“I’m sure you have a good work community and atmosphere. I can sense it in your customer service.”

“Thank you for your knowledgeable and friendly service. It’s an honour to be a member of the YTK unemployment fund.”

“Whatever the situation, I have always received knowledgeable, attentive and friendly service from you. This level of customer service is rare these days. Considering how busy you are, you have still been able to provide good customer service.”

The members of the YTK Association receive personal assistance from a lawyer

What if there is a situation in your work life for which you should receive the view and support by a lawyer? For the members of the YTK Association, help is now here. At the beginning of the year, the YTK Association launched the 'Lakikaveri' service, which also includes a personal lawyer's service. The service included in the association's membership fee can be worth thousands of euros.

If you belong to the YTK Association meant for the members of the General Unemployment Fund YTK, you can start using the extensive legal support and protection provided by the Lakikaveri service at the beginning of 2022.
If you are not yet a member of the YTK Association, you can join here. The sooner you join, the earlier you will have access to all the available Lakikaveri services.

How can I use the Lakikaveri service?

  1. Check that in addition to being a member of the unemployment fund, you are also a member of the YTK Association. You can see your membership status on the OmaYTK 'Combined member’s benefits' page.
  2. If you are not already a member of the YTK Association, join here. The sooner you join, the earlier you will have access to all the available Lakikaveri services.
  3. If you are already a combined member, the Lakikaveri service is part of your YTK association membership fee, congratulations!

The Lakikaveri service is included in the YTK Association's membership fee, which is 22 € this year. A lawyer can take on cases where a YTK association membership has been valid for at least six months. However, events older than those in 2021 are no longer being investigated.
