Individual professional and entrepreneur

The individual professional/entrepreneur members of Akava Special Branches have basically the same member benefits as any other members. The only thing lacking is membership of the unemployment fund.


The committee of independent professionals and entrepreneurs organises free-of-charge training events designed according to the needs and hopes of the individual professionals of Akava Special Branches. In addition, the extensive training offering of Akava Special Branches is also available to individual professionals.


The annual membership fee of individual professionals and entrepreneurs is EUR 200. If you have become a member or started a business after 1 July, the membership fee for the first year is EUR 100. This includes the protection time of an employee fund’s membership fee as stated in the Act on Unemployment Security.
