Insurance

Insurance benefits from Turva

The travel insurance policy provides cover for union members under 70 years of age. If you turn 70 during your journey, you must have purchased a travel insurance policy for those journey days of the year during which you are 70 years of age or older.

Those insured by the travel insurance policy are the persons travelling with the JHL member: the member’s children under the age of 15, the member’s grandchildren, and the children of the member’s spouse. Also the children under the age of 15 who live in the same household and belong to the travel party are covered by the insurance policy.

What does travel insurance cover?

Travel insurance covers treatment expenses of an illness or accident that occurs during travel. In addition, the insurance policy covers expenses caused by journey cancellation or interruption and being late for the journey.

Travel insurance does not apply to luggage

Damage to luggage is not covered by travel insurance. Luggage must be insured separately. You should check your home insurance because luggage might be covered by it.

The insurance policy is valid for all union members until the day the member turns 70. Accident insurance for leisure time is valid everywhere in the world. However, it is not valid in competitive sports or related training, or in the sports or hobbies mentioned in the terms and conditions.

The insurance policy includes compensation for permanent harm caused by an accident, but not for the treatment expenses related to the accident.

JHL also provides remote working insurance for its members. The insurance policy is valid in the remote working place during meals, breaks, and usual activities unrelated to remote work. It is valid indoors and in the yard of the remote working place.

Organisation insurance includes

  • travel insurance
  • luggage insurance
  • travel liability insurance
  • legal expenses travel insurance

For instance, you and your luggage are insured during courses and member events organised by the JHL Institute or the union.

With life insurance, you can ensure that your loved one will make do financially if you suddenly pass away some day. For instance, home loan and other expenses will not have to fall on the surviving spouse in their entirety.

Turvassa life insurance is a new life insurance policy that’s especially affordable to JHL members:

  • only €6.77/month (price example from 2021: 30-year-old JHL member, insurance compensation €100,000).

Turvassa life insurance is granted by LocalTapiola Mutual Life Insurance Company.

Buy life insurance at turva.fi.

The national service number 010 195 110 is available on weekdays from 8 am to 6 pm.

The service number for claims services, 010 195 108, is available from Monday to Friday, from 9 am to 4 pm.

The service numbers carry the local network charge everywhere in Finland.

Insurance benefits from If and Kaleva

As a member of JHL, you can buy life insurance for yourself or your partner as a separate insurance policy, or for the two of you as a more affordable two-person policy. With couple’s insurance, it’s enough that the other insured person is a member of JHL.

An example: The insured persons are a 30-year-old JHL member and their partner of the same age, a €100,000 life insurance policy as a two-person policy, a total of €9.80/month.
