Individual member of the Open Unemployment Fund

In 2022, Open Unemployment Fund’s membership fee for individual members is EUR 8 per month. The membership fee is EUR 8 also in 2023.

Membership fee can also be paid for the whole year, in which case it is EUR 96 in 2022. If you want to pay the membership fee in periods of three months or every calendar month, please contact our customer service, when you have received the invoice.

Pay the membership fee within six months from the start of the period of employment for which the membership fee is due. If you have not paid the membership fee, it can be deducted from the payment of a benefit granted by the fund.

If you are applying for a benefit from the unemployment fund, the membership fee must be in order up to the start of unemployment. There are no exemption periods from the membership fees, if you are an individual member of the Open Unemployment Fund.
