Annual holidays, holiday bonuses and other current daily allowance for applicants

As summer is approaching, we get a lot of questions about the impact of annual holidays and holiday bonuses on the payment of earnings-related daily allowance, for example. In this article, we have collected current instructions for the unemployed and laid-off.

This is how it goes.

Without highly educated people, there would not be any development. Nothing would change and Finnish society would come to a halt. That is why the highly educated need a supportive fund to guard their interests at all times.

This is how we support our members:

  • For example, if you lose your job, we will pay you earnings-related allowance. You can estimate the amount of your allowance with our calculator.

  • Together with the unions, we help secure the position of the highly educated in the labour market.

  • We serve our customers swiftly and professionally in various situations.

A trade union adds security.

Belonging to a union gives you more security. Trade unions usually offer legal services, courses to support employment, coaching events, advice and numerous other member benefits. The unemployment fund of the trade unions shown below is KOKO. Find your own union and join us.
