I want to continue as a member of the unemployment fund after I resign from the union
If you have belonged to the Unemployment Fund for Education and Science through a trade union and want to leave the union, you can continue as a member of the Unemployment Fund for Education and Science. Once you have resigned from the union and paid the membership fees to the union until the date of your resignation, inform us using this form of your continuation as a member of the unemployment fund.
I have been expelled from the trade union

If you want to keep your unemployment fund membership, you must pay the missing membership fees.
