Checking your insurance portfolio you might notice an overlap. Often this happens for the right to legal assistance for labor or labor related conflicts as offered by VMHP Chemicals and Coatings and already existing legal assistance insurance. Since you pay needless extra premium the Union has taken a couple of years ago the initiative to offer complete legal assistance coverage in combination with the union membership. We call this the Premium Membership. This membership is also available for members of VMHP Chemicals and Coatings.
For € 94,95 a year the full membership can be extended with full legal assistance, so also covering legal areas not covered by the normal membership like consumers rights, health (injury), traffic, taxes and capital etc.
Your savings are about € 10,- a month as compared to a separate legal assistance insurance.
