What rules apply to this campaign?

  • The campaign ends September 1, 2020.
  • You must already be a member of Finansforbundet (Financial Services Union Denmark) to be eligible to receive a gift certificate for having referred a prospective/new member.
  • You can recommend/register as many colleagues as you like. All employees in the financial sector can join Finansforbundet.
  • The campaign targets new members and, as a current member, you will be rewarded with a super gift certificate provided that your referral results in a new paying member of Finansforbundet (student assistants are not covered by this campaign as Finansforbundet provides free membership to students). 
  • The recommended/new member may not have been a member of Finansforbundet within the past six months.
  • We send a gift certificate to the current member once the new member has signed up.
  • The amount of your super gift certificate is taxable (not taxed at source). This means that you are responsible for reporting the amount to the tax authorities (SKAT) yourself.
  • Your recommendation/registration of a new member follows the "first come, first served" principle. If more than one member recommends the same person, the first current member to contact us gets the gift certificate for the recommendation/registration.
  • The campaign is subject to maximum of 2,000 gift certificates.
  • Until September 1, 2020, we are welcoming new members by providing the first three months of membership free. The new member may terminate his/her membership at any time by giving six months' notice, effective from the first day of next month, if the member is still working in the sector, or by giving one month's notice, effective from the first day of next month, if the member is unemployed, has retired or found employment outside the sector (resignation from membership pursuant to the statutes of Finansforbundet).
  • Finansforbundet reserves the right to make changes to these terms and conditions.

FAQ

When do I get my reward?

We review registrations on the first workday of every month, and we send your super gift certificate by e-mail once we have registered that your colleague has joined.

How many colleagues can I sign up?

You can register or submit contact data for as many prospective members as you like.

Is my gift considered taxable income?

Yes, the amount of your super gift certificate is taxable (not taxed at source). This means that you are responsible for reporting the amount to the tax authorities (SKAT) yourself.

I have not received my super gift certificate. What should I do?

We send your super gift certificate once we have registered that your colleague has joined. It might take a few weeks for the registration to show up in our membership system. If you are in doubt about anything, please contact us on hverveservice@finansforbundet.dk.

My colleague hasn’t heard from you

Contacting prospective members is one of our top priorities, and we will contact prospects in the sequence that we receive information about them from the website. Please feel welcome to call us any time on tel. (+45) 3296 4600.

I get a super gift certificate, but what does the new member receive?

Until September 1, 2020, all new members receive the first three months of membership free of charge. This equates to a savings of DKK 750 (membership dues of Finansforbundet are DKK 250/month).

When is the final deadline for registering a new member?

The final deadline is September 1, 2020.

Does the campaign also apply to students?

No. Students are not covered by the campaign.

Isn’t this campaign a waste of members’ money?

The more members who present a united front under Finansforbundet, the better. The campaign provides the little "nudge" that it sometimes takes to join. The campaign is an investment that will ultimately generate a surplus, because we are recruiting new members.
