Applying for a further discount

If your eligibility for a discount continues, submit a new membership fee discount application to customer service at the end of the previous discount period.

Certificate required

An application must be submitted with a certificate stating the duration of the service. Attach to your application:

  • Certificate of the duration of service

A picture or a screenshot also works as evidence. You will be asked to provide more information regarding the application if necessary.

Discount amount

EUR14 from the monthly membership fee.

For the members of the Association of IT sector Employees, the discounted membership fee is EUR18 per month (includes the unemployment fund membership fee if the member has joined through the Union of Professional Engineers in Finland).

You might be entitled to a membership fee exemption for the duration of the military or civilian service if the service begins during the discount period granted based on graduation. The membership fee exemption can last at maximum for the duration of the graduation discount. The exemption does not apply to membership fees for a membership association or unemployment fund.
