Membership fee

Your membership fee entitles you to competent promotion and protection of your professional interests as well as numerous benefits and other services!

Talentia’s membership fee consists of a share for Talentia, a share for the central organisation AKAVA, a share for the member associations (regional and professional), a share for the ERKO unemployment fund, the legal expenses and liability insurance Talentia has for its members as well as the accident and travel insurance for leisure travel.

A trade union membership fee is tax-deductible.

For an employed person the membership fee of Talentia is 1,35 % of all gross earnings, including holiday compensation and holiday bonuses, but never more than 45 euros per month.

For those not working (unemployed, on maternity leave, in military service etc.), the fee is 6 euros a month.

The student membership fee is 15 euros per calendar year. The year a student joins is free. A student member is not charged a separate student membership fee if, during the year, they have been working, belonged to the Erko unemployment fund, and paid a full Talentia membership fee.

For a member working abroad the membership fee is 1,35 % of all gross earnings when the employer is Finnish, and 6 euros per month when the employer is not Finnish.

The membership fee for a self-employed member is 10 euros a month if the member does not belong to the unemployment fund.

The fee for dual membership is 120 euros per calendar year. Dual membership means that a person is a full member of another trade union affiliated to AKAVA and also wants to belong to Talentia.

You can pay the membership fee yourself or easily authorise your employer to deduct it automatically from your salary. You can authorise your employer to do this by filling out this form and giving it to your employer.
