What data will be processed?

Primarily we process the information that we have received from you. In addition, we receive information from officials such as the Finnish Tax Administration or the Social Insurance Institution of Finland (Kela) that relate to taxation or to other social benefits. Further, your employer can send information on your employment relationship concerning e.g. pay, type of employment, and documents related to the ending of employment. We can receive information about your residency or dependent children from the Population Register Centre.

We also have the right to receive information from another unemployment fund.

Membership information

Our membership registry requires identifying information (name and social security number), contact information as well as your sector of employment and service language. For statistical purposes we collect data of your gender. In addition, we may require information on your membership payments in order to process your unemployment benefit.

Benefit information

Depending on your work background and situation, we may need information on your unemployment periods, entrepreneurial activity or employment. In addition, we may need information on your possible absence periods.

If benefit has been paid in excess and needs to be reclaimed

To resolve a possible claim for recovery we may need further information, for instance on loan arrangement or enforcement request and the necessary information of a possible legal claim.

How long will my data be stored?

The unemployment fund has a statutory obligation to store the data as long as it is required in the law. Depending on the document this may be either six or ten years.
