1.労働金庫の利用について / Use of the labor bank

労働金庫とは、労働組合や生活協同組合のはたらく仲間が、お互いを助け合うために資金を出し合ってつくった協同組織の金融機関で、営利を目的としない金融機関です。
組合員になると労働金庫(通称:「ろうきん」)による預金・貸付が利用できます。この「ろうきん」は、働く者のためにできた金融機関で、営利を目的としないため、一般銀行より有利なことが多くあります。

The labor bank is a non-profit cooperative financial institution financed by fellow workers of labor unions and consumers’ cooperatives to help one another.
Members of the labor bank (also known as “ROKIN”) have access to savings and loans from the bank. As ROKIN is a non-profit financial institution for workers, it often offers many advantages over general banks.

2.全労済(全国労働者共済生活協同組合連合会)の利用について / Use of ZENROSAI (National Federation of Workers and Consumers Insurance Cooperatives)

全労済とは、消費生活協同組合法(生協法)に基づき、厚生労働省の認可を受けて設立された”保障”の生協です。全労済など協同組合が行う保障に関わる事業は、「保険」ではなく「共済」と呼ばれます(全労済HPより)。
組合員になると、全労済による「総合医療保障」「マイカー共済」「火災共済」などを利用できます。営利機関ではないから、少ない掛金で大きな保障があることが特徴です。

ZENROSAI is an insurance-based cooperative established with approval from the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare in accordance with the Consumer Cooperatives Act. Insurance programs organized by ZENROSAI and other cooperatives are called “Kyosai” in Japanese and not “Hoken,” which is a more common word for “insurance.” (Source: Official website of ZENROSAI)
Members of ZENROSAI have access to a wide range of insurance policies offered by ZENROSAI, such as “Sogo Iryo Hosho (comprehensive medical insurance),” “My Car Kyosai (vehicle insurance)” and “Kasai Kyosai (fire insurance).” As it is a non-profit organization, one major advantage is that holders can expect a high level of security while paying relatively low premiums.
