Who may apply?

This special agreement may be subscribed to by workers or assimilated workers who provide services to two or more employers in a situation of multi-employment, whether hired full-time or part-time, and whether or not they are receiving the unemployment benefit or subsidy, when any or all of their employment contracts are terminated or when working in a multi-activity situation and they cease any or all of the activities that gave rise to mandatory inclusion in two or more Social Security System schemes, either simultaneously or successively.

A special agreement may be reached to maintain the same contribution bases as those in the multi-employment or multi-activity situation.

Requirements

The worker or assimilated worker must have been on active contributor status for two or more employers, or simultaneously on active contributor status in two or more schemes, and have terminated one or all activities, simultaneously or successively.
