When does the procedure start?
Once the voluntary payment period comes to an end, the Social Security Treasury General (TGSS), issues an Enforcement Order to begin the procedure for the enforced collection of outstanding debts with Social Security.
What procedures can be carried out?
Once the Enforcement Order has been received, the interested party can:
- Pay the debt
- Lodge an Administrative Appeal
When and where can this be done?
- Payment will be accepted at any time during the enforcement procedure before the seizure of assets.
The payment can only be made into the account stated on the Enforcement Order, in Financial Entities or Agents Collaborating with the collection agents of the Social Security Treasury General, in cash, by cheque provided it meets the regulatory requirements, by bank transfer or debt or credit card, via the Social Security e-Office.
- The Administrative Appeal should be lodged within 1 month from the date the Enforcement Order is issued.
The Administrative Appeal should be sent to the corresponding Provincial Office of the Social Security Treasury General and can also be presented at any of the places indicated in article 38 of Law 30/1992, of 26-11, on the Legal Regime of the Public Administrations and the Common Administrative Procedure.
When does the procedure end?
When the pursued debts are settled, including the principal, surcharges, interest and costs.
