27.06.2018 About e-mails
When you send e-mail to Teachers’ Unemployment Fund, we always reply to you through a secured e-mail access. Some e-mail programs, e.g. Gmail, tend to forward our e-mails to the junk mail inbox so please check from there if you have not received a reply to your mailbox. This applies also to a situation where you have ordered a new password from the login page of Openetti.

All wages paid and tax-exempt reimbursements of travel expenses will be reported to the Incomes Register starting from 1 January 2019. However, unemployment funds will get an access to the Incomes Register in the beginning of the next year. For this reason, people who get unemployed will still have to provide unemployment funds with a salary certificate in order for an unemployment fund to be able to determine the amount of earnings-related unemployment allowance.
