Student, remember the unemployment fund membership when starting your summer job

As a student, you can join the unemployment fund if you are in paid employment. When you are a member of the fund, you accumulate earnings-related unemployment security for yourself during your studies.

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.

Are you turning the wheels of development? Join KOKO! Together with the unions, we work every day to provide you with better possibilities to take yourself and Finland further.

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.
