Discounted membership fees

You may be eligible for a discount on your regular TEK membership fee. See the terms and conditions.

You may be given a discount on the full TEK membership fee on the grounds specified below, provided that the total membership fee does not fall below the minimum fee. In 2023 - 2024 the minimum fee with an unemployment fund membership is EUR 117 per year (EUR 9,75 per month) and EUR 54 per year (EUR 4,50 per month) for not fund members.

You can apply discounted fee from member service via OmaTEK. Please include documents that verify the reasons for your unpaid leave, such as a statement for family leave (Kela) or full-time studies.

The reason for the discount must continue for an uninterrupted period of at least three months for you to qualify for the discount. A discount may be given retroactively only from the beginning of the year. You must send your discount application during the same year, latest on 31 December. Please note, you cannot apply for a retroactive discount for previous years. The discount for spouses always starts in the beginning of the month following the application. 

If the reason for your membership fee discount ends earlier than the granted discount period, then you must notify TEK. A discount ends when the reason for the discount ends. 

Please note, members are not eligible for a discounted membership fee, if they are working part time (e.g. part-time retirement, partial child care leave, part-time work).
