Integration of the Special Agricultural Scheme into the General Scheme:

Employed agricultural workers included in the REA , as well as the employers to whom they provide their services, shall be included, effective as of 01/01/12 , in the Social Security General Scheme, through the setting up of a special Scheme for said workers,  with entitlement to Social Security benefits under the same terms and conditions as in the General Scheme.

Integration of the Special Scheme for Domestic Employees into the General Scheme:

Effective as of 01/01/2012, the Special Scheme for Domestic Employees shall be included in the General Social Security Scheme, through the setting up of a special scheme for said workers, who will be entitled to Social Security benefits under the same terms and conditions as in the General Scheme .

General requirements demanded

The general requirements for entitling workers to benefits under the Special Systems are as follows:

  • To be affiliated  or in a situation equivalent to affiliation in the corresponding System.

  • To be up-to-date with payments for which workers are directly responsible, even though the benefit is awarded due to the reciprocal sum of contributions in a salaried employee system.
    • For these purposes, the payment demand mechanism provided for in |art.  28.2 of Decree 2530/1970, passed on 20 August, will be applicable for whatever Social Security system to which the applicant may belong at the time of applying for the benefit or in the system said benefit is applied for.
    • When, by deferring settlement of the payments owed, the applicant is considered up-to-date with payments for the purposes of awarding a benefit and he subsequently fails to meet the deferred payment schedule or conditions, he will no longer be considered up-to-date with payments, and the benefit he was receiving will immediately be suspended, and it will only be resumed once the debt with the Social Security has been settled in full. To this end, the benefit Management Entity may deduce the corresponding deferred debt payment from the monthly amounts accrued by the claimant.

Special Scheme for Coal Mining

The benefit is granted under the same terms and conditions as for the General Scheme of the Social Security, with the following particular condition:

  • Base Pension:

When the disability arises from common contingencies, it is the standardised base  that corresponds to the worker at any given time, according to the professional category that they had at the time the situation began.

Special Scheme for Sea Workers

All workers included under the Special Scheme for Seafarers are covered against temporary disability, when caused by either common or professional contingencies.

The benefit is granted under the same terms and conditions as for the Social Security General Scheme, with the following particular conditions:

For workers in groups II and III, the Subsidy will be paid directly through the Provincial or Local Departments of the Social Marine Institute or the appropriate Mutual Insurance Society and is not delegated to companies, although they are responsible for payment from the 4th to the 15th day of sick leave.

In the case of self-employed workers:

  • To access the benefit, workers must be up-to-date with their contribution payments at the start of the sick leave, and submit a statement about the person who manages the work or, where appropriate, the temporary or permanent stoppage of this work.
  • For common contingencies, it is not possible to opt for temporary disability coverage with a Mutual.
