As a member, you are insured under organisation insurance, liability and legal expenses insurance and passenger insurance with the mutual insurance company Turva. In addition, you can get discounts on your other insurances.
The insurances cover full members of the association under the age of 68 and student members. The insurance is valid until the end of the year in which the member retires permanently, but not later than the end of the year in which the member reaches the age of 68.
The insurance also covers children under the age of 20 travelling with the insured. Children refer to the insured’s own children and grandchildren, the children of the insured spouse and children permanently living in the same household as the insured.
The insurance is valid for leisure trips from Finland abroad as well as for trips in Finland made for leisure purposes that extend at least 50 kilometres from the insured’s home, workplace or leisure home. The insurance is valid for a maximum of 45 consecutive days from the beginning of the trip.
Loimu’s mobile membership card also acts as a travel insurance card. Be sure to keep the card with you when travelling and present it when needed. Turva’s TaskuTurva mobile application also acts as a travel insurance card. If necessary, you can order a passenger insurance certificate from Turva’s website and the certificate will be emailed within 24 hours.
Members of the union are insured under organisation insurance whenever participating in organisation tasks or events around the world. Contrary to the terms of the insurance, the passenger insurance does not comply with the upper age limit of 70 years.
The organisation insurance includes passenger insurance, luggage insurance, travel liability insurance and legal expenses travel insurance.
The insurance covers members and student members of the union who are employed or hold a permanent position with a third party as well as scholarship researchers in matters concerning their research work. The insurance covers also entrepreneurs and self-employed persons belonging to the union who do not have employees.
In accordance with the rules of the union, members who have paid the membership fee and who have been members of the union for the previous six months are covered by the legal expenses insurance.
Using the legal expenses insurance is subject to a prior written consent of the union before hiring a representative to handle the matter.
