Membership application form

The standard SAVAL membership subscription covers the cost of an earnings-related unemployment benefit fund and individual member services in the event of employment problems. SAVAL also engages in vital collective bargaining and lobbying work on behalf of the profession.

The members of SAVAL benefit from guidance in matters of employment and from associated legal advice. This assistance can be costly to obtain elsewhere, for example when negotiating the terms and conditions of employment in Finland or abroad, or when there are problems with an employer.

Membership fee

The standard monthly membership subscription to SAVAL is EUR 28 in 2019. This includes the unemployment fund membership subscription fee.

The monthly subscription fee is EUR 19 for the self-employed and EUR 4 for students. All subscriptions are tax-deductible. SAVAL informs the tax authorities directly of each member's individual payments.  The invoice will be sent to your home address once or four times per year according to your choice.
