- How do I request a payment deferment?
- What documents are recognised by the Administration as valid for justifying the deferment request application?
- Is it possible to defer the debt if the payer anticipates that their economic-financial situation is going to prevent them from paying their debts in the timeframes and terms established under the law?
The payment of a Social Security debt can be deferred, so long as a series of conditions are met. To request this deferment there is a request model to be submitted at any of the General Treasury of the Social Security Offices, where they will inform you and resolve all your doubts on this matter. The most practical option is to go to the Office where the debt is held and request its deferment there. The maximum period for paying back the debt is five years, although the actual period granted will depend on the amount of the debt and the circumstances at the time. The awarding of the payback period will give rise to the payment of interest, in accordance with the legal interest on money.
There is no list of documents. The Administration may request financial documentation from the applicant, depending upon the complexity of the case, the amount of the debt, the situation of the responsible individual, |Etc.
Deferment may be requested for debts that are within the regulatory payment period. Applications may not be made to defer future contributions for which the regulatory payment periods have not yet arrived.
