In its August 18 meeting, Tradeka’s sickness fund’s board of directors decided to offer fund membership for a discounted price for the remainder of the year. The discounted membership fee is a mere 0.75% of pre-assessed income. It is valid from September 1st to December 31st, 2021.
We also have good news to members who have been temporarily laid off. The board of Tradeka’s sickness fund decided that due to the current situation, temporarily laid-off members of the fund are also entitled to compensation by the fund until December 31st, 2021. According to fund rules, no compensation is paid during a temporary layoff. However, the board of directors may under its discretion grant permission to the contrary. The sickness fund made the decision in order to do its part to help those in need.
