Royal Decree 463/2020, of 14 March, declaring a state of alarm, established the suspension of the calculation of administrative deadlines as of 15 March. Now Royal Decree 537/2020, of 22 May, extending the state of alarm states that, with effect from 1 June 2020, the calculation of these deadlines shall resumed, or shall be restarted, if so provided for in a legal regulation approved during the state of alarm and its extensions (art. 9). This means that administrative deadlines suspended on 15 March will continue to count from 1 June, or will be reinitiated if so provided in a legal regulation approved during this period.
In addition, with effect from 4 June 2020, the suspension of deadlines for the limitation and expiry of administrative rights and actions will be lifted. (art.10)
The terms and deadlines for collection management procedures will resume on 1 June, in the administrative scope and, from 4 June, also in the procedural scope with relevance in insolvency procedures involving the Social Security General Treasury.
The issue of administrative documents will therefore resume:
All deadlines relating to notifications of administrative documents, both telematic and postal, are also resumed or initiated.
The calculation of deadlines for presenting allegations, providing documentation or filing administrative and legal appeals (the latter from the 4th) are also resumed or initiated.
No request is necessary since the resumption of deadlines is automatically applied according to Royal Decree 537/2020 of 22 March.

As provided for in final provision ten of Royal Decree-Law 8/2020, of 17 March, this measure shall remain in force until one month after the end of the declaration of the state of alarm, unless the Government decides to extend it by royal decree-law, therefore, until one month after the end of the state of alarm, the ISM shall, on its own initiative, extend all subsidies that may be extended, provided that the previous six-monthly right has expired after 31 January.

A new extraordinary benefit is established for people who work seasonally and for those who carry out fixed and periodic work that is repeated on certain dates, the duration of which will be until 31 January 2021. Those eligible for this new benefit will be:
For workers affected by ERTE derived from COVID 19, the days that they receive the contributory benefit from 1 October 2020 until 31 January 2021 will be subtracted from the duration of the benefits that are subsequently recognised whose starting date is prior to 1 October 2026.
However, no such consumption will be made for those who receive a new benefit before 1 January 2022 due to the termination of a fixed-term contract or due to dismissal for economic, technical, organisational or production reasons, or for any other reason if the dismissal is unfair.
The amount of the benefit will be 70% of the regulatory base, without prejudice to the maximum and minimum amounts of unemployment benefits, and regardless of whether more than 180 days of benefit have been received.
As of 30th September 2020, the amount of benefits granted to persons affected by ERTE shall not be reduced by the proportionate part of the hours worked in other jobs held on the date on which they were affected by the ERTE.
As a general rule, in cases of suspensions of contracts or reductions to working days, companies are obliged to pay their contributions.
Royal Decrees-Law 8/2020, of 17 March, 18/2020, 12 May, and 24/2020, 26 June, exceptionally provide that in ERTEs authorised based on temporary force majeure linked to COVID-19, as well in employment adjustment plans for economic, technical, organisational or production causes (ETOPs), the company shall be exempt from paying the business contribution, including contribution for unemployment, Wage Guarantee Fund and Vocational Training, with the percentages and terms provided for in the above mentioned regulation.
In the case that working hours are reduced, companies are obliged to pay their own and the employee's contributions for the part of the working day in which the activity is carried out, and they are exempt from paying the contributions for the part of the working day not carried out.
Exemption rates will vary depending on whether the company, as of 29 February 2020, had 50 or less, or more, employees registered in the Social Security.
For the duration of the period of suspension of contracts or reduction of working hours.
Generally no: However, if during the period in which the contract is suspended, the worker does not receive the corresponding unemployment benefit, they must de-register from Social Security. Once the suspension has ended, they must re-register for Social Security.
If, during the period in which the contract is suspended, the worker does not receive the corresponding unemployment benefit, they must de-register from Social Security. Once the suspension has ended, they must re-register for Social Security.
If, during the period in which their working day is reduced, the worker does not receive the unemployment benefit corresponding to these shorter days, they must only remain registered for the Social Security corresponding to the hours they have worked.Royal Decree-Law 8/2020 determines that working people affected by these Temporary Employment Regulations (ERTEs) are entitled to the contributory unemployment benefit even if they do not have the necessary minimum occupation period stated. Furthermore, the duration of this benefit is not calculated for the purpose of using the maximum periods for these benefits.
It should be noted that during the period of validity of the extraordinary public health measures taken by the authorities to combat the effects of the spread of COVID-19, applications for the unemployment benefit made outside the legally established time limits shall not incur a reduction in the duration of entitlement to the corresponding benefit.

i. Notification of the situation of workers whose contracts remain suspendedWill continue to be identified with the values V, W or X in the TYPE OF INACTIVITY field, as appropriate, regardless of whether the company is in full or partial force majeure. Therefore, no specific notification regarding affiliation must be sent regarding these workers until they resume their activity, in full or in part, or increase their previously reduced working hours.Regardless of the above, the Sworn Statement of Total or Partial Force Majeure must be sent for all exemptions to apply.ii. Notification of the situation of workers resuming their full or partial activity in situations of force majeureFor workers resuming their activity from the moment the company changes to a situation of partial force majeure and which, therefore, have made the relevant sworn statement with the date activity could be resumed- corresponding responsible declaration with the date on which the activity could be restarted (Cause for Unusual Contribution 059), the content of the TYPE OF INACTIVITY field regarding affiliation must be changed by the usual procedures, replacing values V, W or X, as appropriate, with values R-TOTAL ACTIVE.WORK. or S- PARTIAL ACTIVE WORK.

A receipt will be generated for the exonerated party and another receipt for the non-exonerated party.
In the case of employment contract suspensions reported using a ‘V’ in the TYPE OF INACTIVITY field, the General Treasury of Social Security will automatically apply the contribution exemption depending on the number of workers registered on 29 February 2020.
In the case of reductions in working hours reported using a ‘W’ or ‘X’ in the TYPE OF INACTIVITY field, the contribution for the period of activity will be made in accordance with the general rules applicable to part-time contracts, and therefore the number of hours of work carried out in the period of reduction of the working day must be communicated within the scope of the contribution. With regards to the contribution for the period of inactivity due to the reduction in working hours, the General Treasury of Social Security will automatically apply the exemption from contributions according to the number of workers registered on 29 February 2020.
In the case of total suspension of the employment contract due to COVID-19 duly reported with the relevant values in the TYPE OF INACTIVITY field, the Social Security General Treasury will automatically apply the contribution exemption depending on the number of workers registered in the Social Security on 29 February 2020.
In the case of reductions in working hours or partial suspensions of employment contracts linked to COVID-19 reported with the relevant values in the TYPE OF INACTIVITY field, the contribution for the period of activity will be made in accordance with the general rules applicable to part-time contracts, and therefore the number of hours of work carried out in the period of reduction of the working day must be communicated within the scope of the contribution.

Requirements for applying exemptions for ERTE due to force majeure or regulated employment adjustment plans for economic, financial, organisational or production causes -ETOP-, the latter in RDL 24/2020, linked to COVID-19 vary depending on the circumstances of the company and each of the workers, as well as the period in which it intends to apply contribution exemption.
Companies waiving the workforce adjustment plan before the labour authority must notify this express waiver to the Social Security General Treasury through the RED System - Cause for Unusual Contribution 63.
Notifying the express waiver means that termination of the employment contract suspension or reduced working hours need not be reported for each of the workers affected by the workforce adjustment plan, leaving the TYPE OF INACTIVITY field blank as this action will automatically be taken by the system.
In accordance with Article 5.2, trading companies or other legal entities that opt for workforce adjustment plans related to COVID 19 and use the public resources allocated to them, may not distribute dividends for the fiscal year in which these workforce adjustment plans apply, except if they have paid the amount corresponding to the exemption applied to social security contributions in advance and have waived it.

In order for the rebate established for this group to apply, the company is required to submit the sworn statement. This sworn statement consists of noting value 017-TOURISM-COMMERC-HOSPITALITY.C/INTERMIT.PERM.TOURISMCATE.C.INTER.P- in the CAUSE FOR UNUSUAL CONTRIBUTION field, for each CCC and accrual month affected.The sworn statements referred to in this article must be submitted using the Social Security Electronic data transfer system (RED System), regulated in Order ESS/484/2013, of 26 March.
Additionally, for the workers to whom it is applicable, value 420 in the ADDITIONAL SITUATIONS field must be filled in with the following specifications:
Companies must note value 017 - TOURISM-COMMERC- HOSPITALITY C/INTER. PERM., using the RED SYSTEM, for CCCs with value 79xx in the ECONOMY ACTIVITY (CNAE) field.

Exceptionally, companies with CCCs belonging to the Autonomous Region of the Balearic Islands may note in the records value 017 in the CAUSE FOR UNUSUAL CONTRIBUTION field for CCCs with CNAE values 79xx, 46xx, 47xx, 55xx and 56xx.
No, this deduction will be calculated automatically by the system once the additional 420 situation has been reported. In the event that the payment has already been confirmed, you must mechanize the additional situation and request the correction of the credit in order for the deduction to be applied to that payment.
If the action indicated in the previous paragraph could not be performed at the time the value 420 was available to enter, the corresponding payment return can be requested.
The entry, by the authorised REDs, of records with a value of 420 constitutes a sworn statement that each and every one of the requirements for access to that benefit is fulfilled and that none of the exclusions that would determine non-access to it are present.
Records with a value of 420 should only be entered when each and every one of the conditions and requirements set out in the aforementioned Article 13 of Royal Decree-Law 7/2020 or additional provision four of Royal Decree-Law 25/2020, as well as in the other applicable regulations for access to and maintenance of payment deductions, and when any of the exclusions applicable to the benefit in question do not apply.
No, this is a different and supplementary benefit, as contained in Royal Decree-Law 8/2020, regarding extraordinary urgent measures to combat the economic and social impact of COVID-19 (ARTICLE 17). The amounts, duration and access requirements have been modified, among other elements, with the aim of assisting a greater number of beneficiaries.The validity is limited to one month following the entry into force of Royal Decree 463/2020, which declared the state of emergency to manage the crisis caused by COVID-19. If the state of emergency is extended beyond the initial month, the benefit will end on the last day of the month in which the state of emergency is lifted.

Or, in other cases, when the turnover in the month prior to that for which the service is requested is reduced by at least 75% in relation to the average turnover for the previous six-month period.
Yes, those who employ workers and have had to close due to the state of emergency or have suffered a reduction in their turnover of at least 75% can present an ERTE for their workers and request this supplementary benefit for themselves.
During the period of receipt of the extraordinary benefit for cessation of activity, self-employed workers who suspend their activity must not process the cancellation of their Social Security registration and continue to register their economic activity with the Treasury.
If the right to the benefit is due to a 75% reduction in invoicing in the month prior to the month in which the benefit is requested in relation to that of the previous six-month period, they must in any case remain registered with the corresponding Social Security system, so that the exceptional regulations of RDL 8/2020 can be applied to them.
During the period of receipt of the extraordinary benefit for cessation of activity, self-employed workers who suspend their activity must not process the cancellation of their social security registration, and must therefore continue to be registered in the self-employed system.
No. Once the duration of the benefit has elapsed, the benefits in the contribution that were enjoyed prior to the concession of this benefit will again be applicable, where appropriate.
No. This period is understood as being contributed for according to Article 17 of RDL 8/2020.
No, this time will not reduce the periods for benefits for cessation of activity to which the beneficiary may be entitled in the future.
Paid contributions which overlap with any of the days during the period in which you are entitled to the supplementary benefit have been refunded by the Treasury. Resolution of the recognition of the right to the refund has been notified in the SEDESS and the amount has been paid to the same bank account where the charge was made.If the refund has not been processed, you can request it through the relevant SEDESS service.
As above, these workers will be entitled to the benefit if they can demonstrate a fall in turnover of at least 75%, as long as there is no discrepancy between the benefit and the activity.
The amount shall be determined by applying 70% to the base rate, which is calculated in the same manner as for the ordinary benefit for the cessation of activity: in other words, the average of the base rates contributed during the continuous 12-month period immediately preceding the application.
As a 12-month contribution period is not required for access to the benefit, when this period is not demonstrated, the amount of the benefit shall always be equivalent to 70% of the minimum contribution basis of the program for self-employed workers, which shall also apply to maritime workers (70% of €944.35=€661.04).
It will last for one month and will be extended until the last day of the month in which the state of alarm ends in the event that this situation is extended beyond the established month.
In addition, the time for which they are paid shall be deemed to be paid and shall not reduce the periods of severance pay to which they may be entitled in the future.
Eligible workers shall have the right to receive the benefit with effect from 14 March 2020, the date on which RD 463/2020 declaring the State of Emergency entered into force.
Those whose activity is among those suspended by RD 463/2020:
In addition to this documentation, when the reason for the service is a reduction in turnover, you must provide proof of this reduction. The form on the website will indicate the documentation to be submitted in each case.

No, the compatibility regime established by that Royal Decree-Law does not affect this extraordinary benefit for termination of activity.
This benefit shall be compatible with any other social security benefit that the beneficiary might be receiving and is compatible with the performance of the activity he or she was conducting. With regard to self-employed workers included in the Special Scheme for Sea Workers, the cessation of activity allowance shall be incompatible with the collection of benefits for the standstill of the fleet.

23. What are the measures approved for the protection of self-employed workers by the RD-law 2/2022, of 22 February, adopting urgent measures for the protection of self-employed workers, for the transition towards the structural mechanisms for the defence of employment, and for the economic and social recovery of the island of La Palma, and extending certain measures to deal with situations of social and economic vulnerability?

Prórroga de las medidas extraordinarias de Seguridad Social para los trabajadores autónomos afectados por la erupción volcánica registrada en la zona de Cumbre Vieja en La Palma
It is a temporary extraordinary subsidy which individuals included in the Special System for Domestic Employees of the General Social Security Scheme can benefit due to lack of or reduced activity caused by the declaration of state of alarm. The Resolution of 30 April 2020, published in the BOE on Monday, 4 May, develops the procedure for processing applications.
Domestic employees are entitled to the extraordinary subsidy for lack of activity and when they are registered in the Special System for Domestic Employees of the Social Security General Scheme before the state of alarm was declared, 14 March, and when they are in one of the following situations:
If no services are provided, the domestic worker’s registration must be cancelled. Reduced working hours must also be notified to the Social Security General Treasury.
These notifications can be sent using the Deregistration in the Special System for Domestic Workers and Modifications/Corrections of workers’ data in the Special System for Domestic Employees services of the Social Security Electronic Office.
Temporarily, during the current situation caused by COVID-19, if no digital certificate or Cl@ve is available, these procedures can be carried out by accessing the Filing of other documents, applications and notifications (Social Security General Treasury) service without a certificate.
The procedure for processing subsidy applications does not establish the cancellation of registration in the Special System for Domestic Employees as a requirement to access the subsidy.
While the domestic employee is registered, they person responsible for payment must continue to pay contributions. The Social Security General Treasury will calculate payment and issue the relevant debit notice, regardless of whether the employee receives the extraordinary subsidy or not.
Also in the case of reduced working hours, the obligation to pay remains in force under the terms indicated.
Royal Decree-Law 11/2020 does not provide for exemption from the relevant payments to the Special System for Domestic Employees in general, nor while receiving the extraordinary subsidy.
In order to receive the subsidy and accredit the situation, the domestic employee will need an affidavit signed by the employer or employers regarding the total or partial reduction of services.
Termination of the employment contract can be accredited by a letter of dismissal, notification of termination from the employer or documentation accrediting cancellation in the Special System for Domestic Employees of the Social Security General Scheme.
Documentation available on the SEPE website:
The monthly amount of the extraordinary subsidy for lack of activity depends on the remuneration received by the employee and the reduction of activity.
It will be 70% of the base rate for the activity no longer carried out and may not exceed the Minimum Professional Wage, excluding the proportional share of overtime.
In the case of partial loss of activity, the amount will be received in direct proportion to the reduction in the employee’s working hours.
If several jobs were carried out in this special system, the base rate will be calculated for each job no longer carried out. In this case, the total amount of the subsidy will be the sum of the amounts obtained by applying 70% to the different base rates of each job; this total amount is also limited to the Minimum Professional Wage.
Recognition of the extraordinary subsidy for domestic employees is managed by the Public Service of State Employment. The Resolution of 30 April 2020, published in the BOE on Monday, 4 May, develops the procedure for processing applications.
The application can be submitted from 5 May until the last day of the month following the end of the state of alarm. The Public Service of State Employment supports online filing, via the Electronic Office, provided you have an electronic ID, e-certificate, or cl@ve.

If you carry out activities as a self-employed person and simultaneously work for another person and these activities correspond to different Social Security Schemes, you must be registered in and pay contributions under both Schemes.
It firstly needs to be determined whether the worker's situation should fall within the Special Self-Employed Workers' Scheme. Article 2 of Decree 2530/1970, of 20th August, regulating the Special Regime for Self-employed Workers (Spanish acronym:RETA), defines a Self-employed individual as a person who habitually, personally and directly carries out economic activity for profit without such activity being conditioned by an employment contract. This also applies to the case of using the remunerated services of other persons. In any case, your corresponding Office of the Treasury General of the Social Security will be able to inform as to whether or not you should be included in the RETA. With regard to the contribution, current Social Security regulations do not provide for any contribution discount, if the worker by virtue of their work activity needs to be simultaneously included in the General and Self-Employed Workers' Schemes.
Double contribution or multiple activity will provide the entitlement to the earning of benefits in each of the Schemes in which you are registered, if the relevant contributions are shown to be superimposed and so long as the requirements of each Scheme for such entitlement are met.
You can consult it on the e-Office, using the Duplicate Affiliation Document Service
Finally, you can also find your Social Security affiliation number by going to any Social Security Office where they will give you the number and a duplicate affiliation document.
Collective labour agreements do not form part of the Social Security's jurisdiction. They are the responsibility of the relevant labour authority according to the territory where the agreement applies, in other words the State Employment Office if it is a nationwide agreement or the competent body in the Autonomous Community if the agreement is of application in a particular Autonomous Community.
For any issue related to the Social Security healthcare card, you must go to the health care clinic or primary health care centre assigned to you by the relevant body responsible for providing health care in your Autonomous Community. This information, however, is not the responsibility of our website.
As set out in the tenth provision of Order TAS/192/2002, self-employed workers can request the automatic revaluation of their contribution basis. You can make this request through the change contribution basis (Self-employed workers) service. As a result of being personal data protected by the Organic Law on Data Protection, a Class 2 CA digital certificate from the FNMT-RCM which guarantees the security of such data. The e-Office of this website also has information on how to obtain the certificate.
The contribution documents and the corresponding instructions for completing them can be found at this same Web page. They are available to citizens at the various Social Security Administrations.
Likewise, with respect to preparing the contribution bulletins (TC -1 and TC -2), applicants can go to the Social Security Treasury Administration closest to their home to have the bulletins prepared for them through the program, CALCOTIZ , if their company has less than 10 workers. They can also, regardless of the number of workers, send the payroll list of the same through the RED and can make payment of the amounts through the account debit system or electronic payment system, without having to prepare a TC -1
You can set up direct debit payments to Social Security at the financial institution of your choice. Through this service you can also request a change of bank account, as well as the termination of this payment method. To do this, you must have a digital certificate, and you can carry out this process by accessing your personal details online, using the Direct debit service of the e-Office. If you do not have a digital certificate, this same section will provide you with information on how to obtain it.
If you see an anomaly or error in the information provided in the contribution basis report:
The company must display, in a prominent place in the work centre which is accessible to all workers, within the month following the one in which the payments are due, a copy of the Contribution Document or a certified copy of said document. Failure to do so constitutes a breach of Social Security obligations and is subject to a financial penalty.
If this is not carried out, the workers may contact the Inspection of Work and Social Security in order to report said offence. With regard to requests for information on compliance with Social Security Obligations from companies that can be received by Units of the Treasury General of the Social Security, these can only be dealt with if the applicant is the business person him/herself or a person who can provide proof that they have sufficient powers to make said request, as this is personal protected information which is to be treated confidentially by law. Only the legal representatives of workers from the company (staff delegates and company committees) will be able to request this information.
Workers will have the right to contact the Social Security General Treasury (TGSS) to request a report on their contribution basis. The request can be made through the Electronic Office, via the following means:
Companies using the RED System can obtain it using that system. They can also request it at the Social Security e-Office or at any Social Security Treasury General Administration.
Any person who has been assigned an affiliation number (NAF), if in possession of a digital certificate, can request a Certificate of being up to date with obligations owed to the Social Security, through the e-Office, at the routes specified below:
Entities that have been assigned a contribution account code (CCC) should use the following routes in the "Companies" section:
If not in possession of a digital certificate, a Report of being up to date with obligations owed to the Social Security can be applied for using the following routes:
If you belong to the Special Self-Employed Workers Scheme, Employed Agricultural Worker Scheme, Intermittent Domestic Employees, Self-Employed Sea Workers and Special Agreement,and would like to obtain personal information on last year's receipts and your contribution bases, visit the Bases and payments report service of the e-Office , and follow the procedure indicated in this option.
The payment of a Social Security debt can be deferred, as long as certain conditions are met. There is an application form which can be used to request this deferment by submitting it to any of the Social Security Treasury General Administrative Offices, where you can also obtain information and the answers to any questions you may have about this matter. The most practical option is to go to the Administrative 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 deferment will incur interest, in accordance with legal financial interest rates.
If you have a digital certificateyou can apply through the Deferment of payment of Social Security debts procedure in the Electronic Register of Applications of the Social Security e-Office.
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.
The minimum inter-professional wage is unseizable. However, salaries, wages, payments or pensions above the minimum professional wage will be seized according to the following scale:
The auctioning of embargoed goods carried out by the General Treasury of the Social Security can be consulted in the Auctions application on this Website.
Failure to present the contribution documents, or payment of the debt after the regulatory payment period, will lead to the application of surcharges and the accrual of late payment interest, as set out in the General Social Security Act. These surcharges and late payment interest will be paid together with the debts to which they are applied.
When late payments are caused by an error by the Administration, which is not acting as an employer, no surcharges or late payment interest will be applied.
According to Article 30 of the General Social Security Act, and Article 10 of the General Social Security Collection Regulations, approved by Royal Decree 1415/2004 of 11 June, the surcharges to be applied due to a failure to pay contributions within the regulatory periods are:
Where the persons responsible for payment have fulfilled the obligations, set out in Article 29 (1) and (2) of the General Social Security Act, within the allotted time period:
Where the persons responsible for payment have not fulfilled the obligations, set out in Article 29 (1) and (2):
Surcharges on debts other than contribution payments
Debts with Social Security of revenue payable by public law which do not consist of contribution payments, if not paid within the established regulatory period, will be increased by a surcharge of 20%.
The possibility that the Social Security Office cancels the surcharges has been eliminated by Royal Decree 1415/2004 of 11 June which on this matter did not reproduce section 3 of |Article 59 of the previous Collection Regulation approved by Royal Decree 1637/1995.
Persons who are responsible or obliged to make contributions or pay other debts to the Social Security are entitled to the full or partial return of any payments made in error.
If you have a digital certificate you can submit your application through the General Scheme and Related Procedures Undue Payment Return procedure, at the Social Security e-Office, or go to the local Social Security Treasury General Administration Office of the party liable for payment. If the Administrative Office is authorised for centralised processing, it shall be responsible for making the return.
The returns application form is available on this website, at the address below:

No. Self-employed workers subject to the "flat rate" benefit may not pay contributions for cessation of activity or for vocational training until the maximum period for benefiting from these reductions has expired. From the first day of the month following the end of the month, contributions must be paid for all protected benefits.
Both the exclusion of contributions for the cessation of activity and vocational training, and the contribution for these contingencies once the maximum "flat rate" period has ended, will be carried out ex officio by the General Treasury of the Social Security.
Yes, unless this contingency is covered in another activity carried out in another Social Security scheme in a situation of pluri-activity, in which case it can be waived.
The following are also exempt from such coverages:
In these cases, these professionals are also subject to a solidarity contribution of 9% of the minimum contribution basis of the tranche 1 of the general table.
This contribution does not count for benefit purposes.
The resulting contribution is deducted from the pension monthly.
Contributions are only payable for temporary disability and professional contingencies plus a special solidarity contribution of 9% of the contribution base for common contingencies.
The contribution basis is that resulting from the application of the rules of the new earnings-related contribution system.
When you reach the retirement age applicable to you according to art. 205.1. of the General Law on Social Security (LGSS), you are exempt from paying Social Security contributions other than temporary disability and occupational contingencies.
The contribution basis shall be that resulting from the application of the rules of the new earnings-related contribution system.
Self-employed workers must pay contributions from January 2023 on the basis of the economic income obtained, irrespective of the working time they use to obtain this income.
Until they exercise the option, in 2023 they will continue to pay contributions on the basis corresponding in January that year, applying the changes and increases to the contribution basis that correspond to them in December 2022 that, in accordance with the General State Budget Act for 2022 and the previous legislation.
No. The higher base for which contributions are being paid on 31 December 2022 must be in the social security scheme for self-employed workers (RETA).
Yes, provided you were paying contributions on a higher contribution basis than would correspond to your income on 31 December 2022, you may continue with that contribution basis or a lower one, even if your income requires the application of a lower contribution basis than either.
There will be an adjustment, but you can waive the refund of contributions, in which case the provisional contribution basis will become final, however, these may never exceed the amount of the contribution basis corresponding to 31 December 2022.
You must apply to waive the refund of your contributions by the last day of the calendar month immediately following the month when you receive notice of the adjustment.
The new system will apply from 1 January 2023.
For 2023, 2024 and 2025, Royal Decree-Law 13/2022 has already established the minimum and maximum contribution basis applicable to the different tranches of net income to be obtained in those years.
In 2023, it is planned to modify the maximum base of tranches 11 and 12 of the general table, in amounts established by the LPGE of 2023.
In 2025, the new contribution system for self-employed workers will be reviewed for 2026 and subsequent years.
This review will be repeated every 3 years until the final implementation of the new system from 2032 onwards.
If the self-employed person was previously benefiting from a rebate modified as of 1 January 2023, will the previous form of calculation and requirements be maintained or will those established in the new model apply?
The new rules apply, except in the case of the old flat rate, in which case it will be governed by the previous regulations until they expire.
It depends on the type of rebate.
The following will not be affected:
It may be modified in other cases if the final contribution basis is lower than the minimum base of tranche 1 in the general table of bases.
The allowance is maintained during the period of receipt of this benefit, up to the age of 23, if the cancer or serious illness, diagnosed before reaching the age of majority, persists and the need for hospitalisation, treatment and care during this period persists.
Unlike the previous legislation, the resulting 100% rebate on the contribution for common contingencies will be applied to the average basis that the worker had in the twelve months when the rebate begins and the contribution rate for common contingencies in force at any given time, excluding the rate corresponding to the temporary disability derived from these contingencies from the calculation.
Will the changes in the percentage of benefits in contributions for family members of the holder of an agricultural holding take place as from 1/1/2023 both for persons registered as of 31/12/2022 and for new registrations?
Yes, from 1 January 2023, both the change of contribution benefit from reduction to rebate and the amount of 40% of the contribution for common contingencies corresponding to the minimum contribution basis of tranche 1 of the general table of bases apply both to workers who were already benefiting from the rebate before 1 January 2023 and to workers registered after that date.
These percentages are applied to the minimum base of tranche 1 of the general table of bases, unless the worker chooses a provisional contribution base, or has a definitive contribution base, which is lower than this minimum base, in which case the rebate is calculated on the lower contribution base.
The amount of the rebate is applied to the minimum contribution basis of tranche 1 of the general table of bases.
Does the amount of the rebate for self-employed workers for professional and family life balance linked to recruitment, the amount of the rebate for self-employed workers during parental leave, adoption, foster care, risk during pregnancy or risk during breastfeeding, the amount of the rebate for self-employed workers who return to work under certain circumstances and the amount of the rebate on contributions for caring for a minor affected by cancer or another serious illness change if the contribution bases are adjusted?
No, these amounts are not subject to change as a result of the adjustment of the provisional bases.
Does the calculation of the bonus for self-employed workers for reconciling professional and family life linked to hiring take into account the contribution rate corresponding to temporary disability cover arising from common contingencies?
No, as the contribution rate corresponding to temporary disability derived from common contingencies is excluded from the application of the 100% rebate on the contribution for common contingencies.
The contribution basis to be used to calculate benefits is the current minimum base of tranche 1 of the general table of bases.
Yes. Self-employed workers may expressly waive the application of the flat rate. The effect of this waiver takes effect on first day of the month following notification of the waiver, the flat rate will cease to apply.
Self-employed workers included in the Special Scheme for self-employed workers, as well as self-employed workers included in the first group of the Special Social Security Scheme for Seafarers.
This includes members of limited companies and worker-owned companies, as well as worker-members of cooperatives who are considered self-employed.
It does not apply to family collaborators or to members of Institutes of consecrated life of the Catholic Church.
Yes. The self-employed worker must apply for application of the new "flat rate" both when registering for the application of this benefit during the first 12 full calendar months, and before the start of the second 12-month period, provided that, in this second period, the self-employed worker expects the annual net economic income to be less than the annual minimum wage corresponding to each annual period during these 12 months.
Yes, this benefit applies even if the self-employed worker takes on employees when registering or at any time thereafter.
No. This group of self-employed workers has its own specific contribution rebate regulated in article 35 of Law 20/2007, on the Statute of Self-Employed Workers.
The different types of "flat rate" are expressly repealed.
However, for self-employed workers who are registered from January 2023 onwards, if this is their first registration with the social security scheme for self-employed workers (RETA) or if they have not been registered with the system in the two years prior to the new registration, a new reduced flat-rate contribution is established in the General State Budget Law (LPGE) (currently €80), with an initial duration of 12 months, extendible to 24 months if they do not earn more than the minimum wage after the initial period.
The financial benefits to which self-employed workers who benefit from this reduced contribution may be entitled shall be determined in accordance with the minimum basis of the lowest tranche of the general table.
These contributions shall not be subject to adjustment.
Although the law has expressly repealed the so-called FLAT RATE in its different modalities, the beneficiaries of these benefits before 1 January 2023 may continue to enjoy them in their contributions until their maximum duration runs out.
Despite the abolition of the articles of the Statute of Self-Employed Workers that governed the different modalities of the flat rate (arts. 31, 31.2, 32 and 32.2) self-employed workers who had these benefits recognised in the contribution at 31 December 2022 will keep them until their terms expire.
The differences between the provisional and final bases are subject to the rates and other conditions of contribution corresponding to the settlement periods to be adjusted.
Members of institutes of consecrated life of the Catholic Church included in the Special Social Security Scheme for Freelancers or Self-Employed workers.
Self-employed workers included in the second and third contribution groups of the Special Social Security Scheme for Seafarers.
The differences between the provisional and final bases is subject to the rates and other contribution conditions corresponding to the settlement periods being adjusted.
Contributions corresponding to months whose contribution bases have been considered for the calculation of the base rate of any financial benefit from the Social Security system are excluded from the adjustment process.
The adjustment is based on the provisional contribution base, as a monthly average, for which contributions have been paid during the corresponding year:
Self-employed persons who have been registered for at least 90 days during the year as self-employed persons in capital and labour companies.
To calculate the 90 days of registration as a member of a company, the days of registration in either of the two cases are added together.
No. Periods of entitlement to Social Security benefits, as well as the months that have been considered to calculate the base rate of the same, are not subject to adjustment and are consolidated as final bases.
There is therefore no need to revise the benefits.
The contribution basis becomes final.
There are two possibilities:
Under no circumstances will Surcharges or Interest be refunded.
As a general rule, income from all economic, business or professional activities carried out in each financial year, whether as an individual or as a partner, is taken into account.
Eligible income is calculated in accordance with the personal income tax (IRPF) rules:
The monthly average is calculated based on this income, i.e. the net annual income is divided by the number of days of actual registration (not including days when the person receives social security benefits or other days taken into account for calculating the base rate for these benefits), deducting 7% as general expenses in general and 3% in the case of commercial and labour partners.
The result of this operation is multiplied by 30 to obtain the actual average monthly net income.
This is a process whereby the final contribution bases are determined by adjusting the monthly contributions of the previous year's provisional bases.
If the Tax Administration makes changes to the amount of the self-employed worker's annual income after the Social Security General Treasury has been notified for the calculation of the definitive contribution basis, how will the change affect the determination of the definitive contribution basis?
If the corresponding Tax Administration makes subsequent modifications, either ex officio or at the request of the worker, to the amount of the worker's annual income, which has been calculated for the adjustment:
The Tax Administration will notify the General Social Security Treasury and the State Labour and Social Security Inspectorate, the Labour and Social Security Inspection Body of these changes by telematic means so that it can determine the amounts to be paid.
Under no circumstances will the amount of Social Security benefits that the self-employed person may have received during the period be modified.
The monthly average of the total net annual income obtained will be taken into account, after deducting 7% (general rule), or 3% (self-employed persons in capital companies or worker-owned companies), divided by the number of calendar days of registration as self-employed workers in the year in question.
The days of registration are those that are subject to adjustment, i.e. the following are deducted:
Which final contribution basis applies if the self-employed person does not file a personal income tax return or, if one has been filed, the taxpayer has not declared income from their economic or professional activities?
The final contribution basis will be the minimum basis for common contingencies for workers included in the General Social Security Scheme for contribution group 7.
However, on a transitional basis, a contribution basis of €1,000 is established for these situations in 2023.
Self-employed workers must report this income when they foresee that the contribution base for which they are paying contributions is lower than the minimum, or higher than the maximum, determined by the income to be obtained.
However, if above circumstances do not apply, self-employed workers must, in any case, report this expected net income before 31 October 2023.
Yes, with the sole exception of members of institutes of consecrated life of the Catholic Church and self-employed workers included in the second and third contribution groups of the Special Social Security Scheme for Seafarers, who will not pay earnings-based contributions.
However, family members and partners of capital companies or worker-owned companies have a specific minimum contribution basis, even if their net income determines a lower base according to the general or reduced base tables and provided that it does not determine their inclusion in a section of the table with a higher minimum contribution basis.
In 2023, the contribution base will be 1,000 euros/month.
As the sum of the registered days in these cases is 90, the contribution base of group 7 of the general scheme is applied (temporarily, in 2023, €1,000), unless a higher minimum contribution base is applicable to the final income.
No. Their contribution base will be the same as that for self-employed workers who have no employees, based on the income obtained.
For registrations from 1 January 2023 onwards, the contribution basis will generally be that established on the basis of the annual income obtained from their economic, business or professional activities.
However, irrespective of the above, pluri-active workers may request the contribution basis which, in accordance with their expected net annual income and the contribution basis that they expect will be applicable to them as employed workers, allows them to adjust their contribution to the Special Scheme for Self-Employed Workers in accordance with the result of the procedure for reimbursement of contributions established for self-employed workers in this situation.
If a self-employed worker enrolled on 31 December 2022 expects their annual income on average per month will fall within the reduced table during 2023, must they pay based on the minimum basis of 960 euros for December 2022?
No. From January 2023, they must request a change of contribution basis, which will take effect on 1 March, between the minimum and maximum established for the income bracket they expect to receive, even if it is lower than the basis of 960 euros.
If it is expected that the net annual income, on a monthly average basis, will be different from what was initially expected, a change in the contribution basis must be requested.
The change of provisional basis may be requested up to six times a year, with the following deadlines and effects:
Under the new model, there is no limit to the choice of provisional contribution bases or to the determination of the final contribution bases, depending on the age of the self-employed.
No. They will be provisional until, as from the following year, the Tax Administration or the Provincial Councils of Navarre, Guipúzcoa, Vizcaya and Álava, notify the Social Security General Treasury of the real net annual income telematically and the latter adjusts the contributions.
From 1 January 2023, self-employed workers will be obliged to declare their income when it is estimated that the average of the contribution bases for which contributions have been paid since January 2023 do not fall between the minimum and maximum assigned to the income bracket expected to be obtained in that year.
For self-employed workers who register after this date, this information will be requested in the registration process.
If the self-employed person is already registered, the expected income must be declared before 31 October 2023, regardless of whether or not this involves a change of base.
Self-employed workers who do not choose a provisional contribution basis will pay contributions during 2023 on the basis that would correspond to them in January of that year in accordance with the contribution basis of December 2022 or, where applicable, the contribution basis resulting from the application to that basis of the changes requested before 31 December 2022.
This contribution basis shall be treated as the provisional contribution base for the purposes of the contribution adjustment procedure.
You choose a contribution base lower than the minimum base of tranche 1 of the general table within the reduced table of bases to be determined for this purpose each year in the General State Budget Act.
These bases will be provisional until the adjustment is made based on the actual net income obtained, on a monthly average basis, once they have been notified by the Tax Authorities in the subsequent financial year.
As a general rule, for collaborating family members and partners in capital companies and worker-owned companies, in accordance with the criteria established in Article 305 of the General Law on Social Security, the provisional or definitive contribution basis may not be less than the minimum base of group 7 of the General Scheme, provided that they have been registered, under any of these conditions, for more than 90 days in each year and their net income does not mean that they fall within a section of the table that determines a higher minimum contribution basis.
However, the law provides for a transitional period in which the above-mentioned groups will not be able to choose, in 2023, a contribution basis of less than €1,000. For 2024 and 2025, the law also provides for the application of lower minimum contribution bases than those in the above-mentioned group 7.
In the contribution adjustment procedure, these workers may not have a definitive contribution base lower base than those indicated above, even if the net income obtained, on a monthly average basis, corresponds to a lower minimum contribution base.
In the case of ex officio registrations at the request of the Labour and Social Security Inspectorate (ITSS) or the General Social Security Treasury, during the period between the date of registration and the last day of the calendar month immediately before effective date of registration, the basis will be the minimum of tranche 1 of the general table, unless the ITSS has expressly set a higher contribution basis.
During this period, the worker may not choose a provisional contribution basis and the definitive contribution basis calculated on the basis of the net income obtained will not apply.
In the case of late registration, the contribution basis shall be the minimum base of Tranche 1 of the General Table of Contribution Basis during the period between the date of registration and the last day of the calendar month immediately prior to that in which the application for registration was submitted.
For these periods, the worker may not choose a provisional contribution basis and the definitive contribution basis calculated on the basis of the net income obtained shall not apply.
For a new registration, the self-employed person must choose a provisional contribution basis based on the net annual income, on a monthly average, that they expect to obtain.
After applying for registration , self-employed workers must request a change in their contribution basis to adjust the full contribution for the calendar year to their expected net annual income on a monthly average basis.
The net income obtained during each calendar year from all the professional or economic activities will be taken into account, whether they are carried out individually or as partners or members of any type of entity, whether or not the entity has legal personality.
Entities of which one is a partner or member may have legal personality, e.g. a limited company, or may not have legal personality, e.g. a community of property.
Net income obtained from activities for which the person must be registered with the Social Security as an employed or similar worker is excluded.
If you simultaneously carrying out other professional or economic activity, for which you do not have to be included in the social security scheme for self-employed workers (RETA) or as an worker employed by another person or similar worker, the net income obtained are taken for calculating the contribution basis.
The net computable income of each of the activities carried out will be calculated in accordance with the provisions of the IRPF regulations and with some special features depending on the group to which they belong.
Once this income has been established, the tables established annually by law (general and reduced) will be used and a choice will be made between the minimum and maximum base, according to the corresponding income bracket, considering the average monthly net annual income.
There are 15 income brackets for 2023, 2024 and 2025 with their corresponding minimum and maximum contribution bases.
From 2026 onwards, the applicable minimum and maximum income brackets and contribution basis will be established by law.
However, unless the net income determines a higher minimum contribution basis, specific minimum contribution bases are established for the following groups, provided that they have been registered for at least 90 days of the year: family members and partners of capital companies and worker-owned companies.
Collaborating family members and corporate self-employed workers may not choose a basis below the minimum basis of contribution group 7 (Minimum Wage (SMI) increased by 1/6). Temporarily and for the financial year 2023 it will not be possible to choose a basis of less than €1,000. The final contribution basis can never be lower than this minimum basis if the person is registered for at least 90 days.
The new social security scheme for self-employed workers (RETA) contribution system does not change the conditions for registration. If the economic or professional activity is carried out by the worker for profit, on a regular, personal and direct basis, outside the scope of the management and organisation of another person, they must register with the social security scheme for self-employed workers (RETA), whether or not they have employees.
The reduced table of contribution bases for the years 2023, 2024 and 2025, determine the minimum and maximum contribution bases for income that are lower, in monthly computation, than the lower limit of tranche 1 of income in the general table of bases.
You must forecast your average monthly net annual income, based on which you must choose a basis between the minimum and the maximum bases corresponding to this forecast.
If you forecast income lower than tranche 1 of the general table, choose your contribution basis from those in the reduced table.
Contributions must be paid on a basis chosen between the minimum and maximum income in the tranche corresponding to your expected monthly income. This basis is based on your expected income and will be considered provisional and will be adjusted in accordance with your real income, determining the final base for benefit purposes.
With this adjustment in mind, in accordance with your income forecasts, the contribution bases can be adjusted up to six times a year by choosing a higher or lower bracket than the one initially chosen, choosing any of the contribution bases in the tables.
The pensioner must communicate any of the following changes to their management body within 30 days of them happening:
If the pensioner lives abroad, they must also send the certificate of proof of life within the first calendar quarter of each year to prove that they are living abroad so that they can continue to receive his or her pension and avoid having it suspended.
Likewise, and always before the 1 March each year, pensioners that have been awarded minimum supplements in their pension and who have obtained gross income from work income, capital or other items (above the annual established amount), must expressly declare this income.
To report these changes, the pensioner can do so through the Social Security e-Office or the Your Social Security Portal, in the "Manage your benefit" section. To do so, you must have a digital certificate, electronic ID or cl@ve. If this is not possible, the pensioner has a series of forms available to them that can be found on this web page. Once the pensioner has completed and signed the form, it can be sent by ordinary mail or presented at any of the Social Security Assistance and Information Centres (CAISS).
To report the changes, the pensioner can do so through the Social Security e-Office or through the Your Social Security Portal, in the "Manage your benefit" section. To do so, you must have a digital certificate, electronic ID or cl@ve. If the pensioner does not have any of these means, they can use a form called Changing bank and address details.
If the pensioner resides abroad, they must complete the bank details by adding the BIC or SWIFT depending on the country of residence.
Once the pensioner has completed and signed the form, it can be sent by ordinary mail or presented at any of the Social Security Assistance and Information Centres (CAISS).
The death must be notified in any case, providing the pensioner's death certificate, through the Social Security E-Office ( for which you must have a digital certificate, electronic ID card or cl@ve) or in person at any of the Social Security Attention and Information Centres (CAISS).
If the pensioner resides abroad, the Provincial Directorate of the INSS that manages his or her pension must be notified of the death, or failing that, to the Labour Council of the Spanish Embassy of the place of residence.
If you have a digital certificate, electronic ID or cl@ve, you can directly obtain the certificate certifying that you receive a pension or, if applicable, that you are not a holder of a public pension through the e-Office service called "Benefit certificates" or through the Your Social Security Portal.
If you have none of these, in order to request the certificate proving whether or not they are receiving the Social Security pension, they can use the form known as the "Certificate Application". Once the form is completed and signed, it can be sent by ordinary mail or submitted to any of the Social Security Assistance and Information Centres (CAISS).
If you live abroad and do not have a digital certificate, you can obtain the certificate directly from the Provincial Directorate of the INSS that manages your pension.
The right to receive benefits expires five years from the day following the date on which the causal event took place, not withstanding the fact that the conditions that gave rise to the right to the benefits occur within three months prior to the date on which the corresponding application was submitted.
Retirement, widowhood, orphanage and family pensions do not expire.
The right to receive benefits expires a year after not being collected:
When pensions result from work-related injuries or occupational disease, the two extra payments in June and November will be distributed in the ordinary monthly payments as these pensions are paid in 12 instalments.
The due periods will be between:
A single day of pension payment will be enough to calculate a sixth of the full amount of the relevant extra payment.
In the event of cancellation, termination or suspension of a benefit, regardless of the reason, the extra payment will be deemed due on the 1st day of the month in which the termination or suspension is agreed or the reason for the cancellation occurs. It will be paid in an amount equal to a sixth for each of the months included between December (extra payment from June) or June (extra payment from November), and the month when the suspension or termination of the pension occurs. Each sixth will be calculated taking the amount of the ordinary pension for the month in which the suspension or cancellation is agreed.
Only in those cases where the recipient of the benefit in question does not have any other form or method of collection in their place of residence.
The pension can be paid, at the request of the pension holder, every calendar quarter or six months in arrears, even if it is due monthly and without, in any case whatsoever, generating any interest for the recipient.
The request for the pension due and not received will be required whenever a recipient of Social Security benefits dies. The pension will be paid in a different way to the system of paying into a current account or savings book or this if cancelled. The request will be produced at the request of the lawful party and will be paid, if appropriate, on behalf of the beneficiaries.
The amount of the benefit according to the number of corresponding payments, including extra payments, up until the end of the year, will be taken into account to calculate the pension's annual base, a determinant of the IRPF tax rate.
When the same individual receives benefits abroad and in Spain, both of these will be added together applying the tax regulation relating to the person's residence for tax purposes to the joint annual base.
Yes, so long as the voluntary rate requested is always greater than the one according to their economic, personal and family situation. You can apply for it through the Social Security e-Office or the Your Social Security Portal, in the "Manage your benefit" section. To do so, you must have a digital certificate, electronic ID or cl@ve.
If you do not have any of these means, there is a form called "Voluntary increase of personal income tax withholding". Once the form is completed and signed, it can be sent by ordinary mail or submitted to any of the Social Security Assistance and Information Centres(CAISS).
The voluntary rate requested will at least be applied until the end of the financial year and so long as the right to this percentage is not given up through communication in writing or a higher rate requested for subsequent years, unless there is a variation in the circumstances that determine a higher rate for the applicant voluntarily.
Recipients of benefits living abroad must not indicate their personal and family circumstances, as these will not be taken into consideration for IRPF deduction purposes.
In addition, any bilateral agreement signed by Spain to avoid double taxation will be taken into account. If there is an agreement, no personal income tax deduction will be made and the regulations provided in each agreement will be in force.
Social Security system pensions can be confiscated according to the scale set out in art. 607 of the Code of Civil Procedure, if the amount of the benefit is higher than the SMI at any time.
If the salaries, wages, pensions or payments were taxed with permanent or temporary discounts of a public nature according to fiscal, tax or Social Security law, the net amount received by the entitlement holder, having deducted the above, will be used to govern the amount confiscated.
The general rule will exclude those cases where the sentence orders the payment of maintenance allowances whenever the obligation for paying them comes directly from the law, including rulings given in annulment, separation or divorce processes on maintenance allowances due to the spouse or children. In these cases, as well as relevant precautionary measure cases, the legal body will determine the amount that can be confiscated.
Generally, it is not possible to confiscate the amount of the pension that does not exceed the current SMI , applying the relevant percentages to be deducted from the amounts that exceed this SMI.
Deductions will be made by applying the scale set out in art. 607 of the Code of Civil Procedure.
The general procedure will be followed, as a result of which it will have to be declared by a decision or agreement with the competent body, reviewing any acts in which this might have been previously declared, communicating the return to those people obliged to pay and other interested parties.
When the decision is final having exhausted administrative procedures, the TGSS will then take charge urging the persons responsible to pay the amount to be returned through the relevant debt claim.
Claims not to be referred to the TGSS are final decisions being dealt with administratively in which the legitimacy of returns that do not exceed 20% of the monthly IPREM is declared, as a result of being a "donatio mortis causa" (gift caused by death).
The obligation to return pensions amounts unduly received will expire after 4 years, starting from when the money was received, or from the time it became possible to carry out an action to demand its return, regardless of the cause of the wrongful receipt, including cases of benefit reviews due to errors made by the Management Body.
If it is not possible to apply the special procedure, by means of which the management body applies discounts to benefits it pays, as well as when, having applied the procedure, it is not possible to make the necessary deductions to cancel the debt in the maximum time frame expected due to the death of the debtor, cancellation of the benefit that they were receiving or for any other cause.
For the purposes of applying the maximum limit of the pension established in the General State Budgets Act, the following will not be calculated:
As a general rule, it is necessary to prove the real age established in each case. However, in those groups that have reduction coefficients of the retirement age according to the activity carried out, the age of 65, for the purposes of determining entitlement to minimum supplements, will understood to be completed when, as a result of applying these coefficients, the resulting age is either equal to or greater than 65 years old. This rule will be applied in special retirement cases at 64 years old. For permanent disability pensions, in relation to minimum supplements, the age requirement will be applied as follows:
Yes, when opting for unemployment benefit, as well as a non-contributory pension for a degree of disability equal to or greater than 75%.
If there is concurrence with a contributory pension in the system, the cancellation of the economic effects of the minimum supplements recognized will occur from the first day of the month after the date of the determination of the concurrent benefit or, where appropriate, the determination resulting in the increase of the amount of the other pension. In cases where the pension is not dealt with by the management bodies (INSS and ISM), the economic effects will occur from the first day of the month after the date of the determination of the unrelated benefit that features in the Register of Public Services.
Income relating to net profits, excluding expenses deductible from these activities in accordance with tax law, will be calculated.
Only 60% of the capital received, where appropriate, will be calculated in cases where there are profits resulting from pension funds, and so long as more than two years have passed since the first contribution to the fund.
The age of access to retirement pensions depends on the age of the interested party and the contributions accumulated during his/her working life.
The retirement ages and contribution periods will be applied gradually until 2027.The minimum age may only be lowered or brought forward for workers who are affiliated or have a situation assimilated to inscription, in certain special cases.
Firstly, the scheme to which the interested party is affiliated when the causal event occurred or the last one in which this circumstance was produced will award the pension, so long as the following requirements are met. If the right is not applicable, the same formula will be used in the above schemes.
If the requirements necessary are not demonstrated in any of them, the scheme in which the interested party can show the most number of contributions will take priority, by adding up all the interested party's contributions.
If the worker cannot prove the age requirement in the scheme in which they show the most number of contributions, the pension for the scheme will be granted so long as they meet the age requirement in one of the other schemes taken into consideration for adding up the contribution periods, as well as the rest of the requirements necessary for this (5 years or 1/4 of the contributions in the scheme allowing early retirement).
Workers who are "members of a mutual society" will be able to retire from the age of 60 providing they meet the necessary requirements.
Self-employed workers who are "not members of a mutual society" will be able to retire two years earlier, at most, than the age that legally applies to them, providing they meet the rest of the requirements.
The periods during which the individual has worked (as a worker employed by another person included in the General Regime, and in the special regimes of Sea Workers and Coal Mining), in which the worker provides evidence of a disability equal to or greater than 65%, are multiplied by the corresponding reduction coefficient:
The result in days is added to the real age of the worker and a fictitious age is obtained which will be taken into account for the purpose of the retirement pension.
Partial retirement can be applied for by workers employed by other people on a full-time basis, who are part of any Social Security employee scheme. It cannot be applied for by staff with statutory relationships or civil servants, directors or managers considered as workers employed by other people, commercial representatives or artists.
With regard to self-employed workers, article 318 of the Consolidated Text of the LGSS rules that partial retirement will be available for self-employed workers included in the Special Schemes for Seafarers and for Self-Employed Workers , according to the terms and conditions established in the regulations. Since this law has not been legally implemented, these workers cannot currently take advantage of this type of retirement.
If they access the pension from a situation similar to that of affiliation without the obligation to make contributions (for example they are involuntarily unemployed and have been uninterruptedly seeking employment since their unemployment benefits terminated), they must have made 2 years' worth of contributions within the 15 year period prior to the date on which the obligation to make contributions ended (termination of unemployment benefit).
If the worker is a member of a "mutual society they can retire from the age of 60 provided they meet the necessary requirements.
If the worker " is not a member of a mutual society and they freely choose to leave their last job, they may retire at an age less than two years from the applicable statutory age, provided they meet the rest of the necessary requirements.
Yes, in certain circumstances with specific regulations, such as certain artists and bull-fighitng professionals.Nor will the reduction coefficients be applied in cases where, due to the application of bonuses for arduous work or disability, the beneficiary reaches the statutory fictitious number of years.
It is not necessary to wait until the statutory retirement age. Workers who opt for partial retirement can request an ordinary or early retirement pension, in any of its forms, provided they meet all the requirements for this.
Yes. In this case it will not be necessary for a relief contract to be signed simultaneously.
The general rule is that the pension is incompatible with being employed or self-employed and being registered with the social security system. However, there are a number of exceptions:
Furthermore, the employer's retirement pension is compatible with merely maintaining ownership of the business or commercial establishment, so long as they do not carry out any work.
For personalised information, it is advisable to go to any of the Social Security Assistance and Information Centres (CAISS).
The general rule is that receiving a pension is incompatible with undertaking work either for another person or as a self-employed person or with activities carried out for the Public Administrations.
There are some exceptions to this incompatibility: the retirement pension is compatible with undertaking:
In any case, the pensioner should let the managing body know that they are going to start work.
If the worker enters into a part-time work contract, within the legal reduction limits set forth for "flexible retirement", his retirement pension will be reduced inversely proportionate to the reduction applied to the working hours. If he works less than 50% or over 75% of his working hours, his pension will be suspended.
In certain circumstances, as from 17/03/2013, it is possible for workers to reconcile their retirement pension (once it is down to 50% of its full amount) with a full-time or part-time job, with no constraint on the number of working hours.
They can be entitled to two pensions, as long as they meet the individual requirements of each scheme. If they are not affiliated or assimilated to any of the schemes when retiring, the contributions shown in each of them must have overlapped for at least 15 years.
In the event that a pension is not granted in one of the schemes, the certified contribution bases in the latter may be added to the contribution bases in the scheme in which pension eligibility exists, only to determine the regulatory base, as long as the sum of the bases does not exceed the maximum contribution limit in force at any given time.
The retirement pension is compatible with owning a business and the functions attached to ownership, as a result of which it is necessary to delimit the functions attached to ownership in accordance with commercial regulations on employer activity.
In principle, the business owner can perform any relevant or necessary function for achieving their objectives, even if they normally use the help of other people, either because they cannot or do not want to act personally, since the ownership of a business or company does not require the employer to carry out a business activity directly and personally. All that is necessary is that it is carried out in their name, i.e. so that legal relationships with third parties generated are imputed to them as well as all the rights and obligations produced, with the owner assuming the business's risk and expense.
Everything related to the management, administration and normal running of the business must be deemed an incompatible activity with the RETA retirement pension for both the individual employer and the de facto employer of a trading company, as this will give rise to affiliation in the Social Security system possibly resulting in, by way of example, the signing of contracts in general, general wages agreements, the company's representation at and outside of trials, the signing of guarantees...
The percentage applicable to the base pension in order to calculate the pension award varies depending on the number of years the individual has been making Social Security contributions. A scale is applied that begins with 50% at 15 years, increasing from the sixteenth year by 0.19% for each additional contribution month between months 1 and 248, and by 0.18% for those who pass month 248, with the percentage applicable to the base pension never exceeding 100%, except in cases where the individual accesses their pension at a later age than is applicable to them.
These percentages will be applied gradually until 2027.
The percentage established at the time the retirement pension is awarded will not alter when the beneficiary reaches the statutory retirement age. However, if on reaching the aforementioned age, the amount of the pension is less than the minimum established for said pension , they will be guaranteed the minimum, provided they meet all the requirements.
In order to prove the minimum contribution period (short-fall) required for accessing a benefit, generally only the contributions actually made or those assimilated by extra payments (the so-called contribution-days) will be calculated. The allowance time granted to the worker according to their age on 1 January 1967 is not used to prove the minimum contribution period required, and will only be taken into consideration to determine the pension percentage.
The pension amount will be the result of applying the work day reduction percentage to the amount of the pension due to them on the date of the causal event, according to the number of years contributions are made.
To determine the percentage applicable to the base pension of the partial retirement pension, when the worker applies for it prior to reaching the age of 65, the reduction coefficients will not be applied based on age.
The contributions made for activities carried out during the partial suspension of receipt of the retirement pension will result in an improved pension once employment is terminated.
To this end, once the termination of activity has been communicated to the competent management entity, payment of the full sum of the retirement pension will resume. once said sum has been recalculated in accordance with the following rules:
They must be included under the voluntary improvement of the protective actions arising from work-related injury and occupational disease contingencies and have previously or simultaneously opted for temporary disability benefit coverage.They must be up-to-date with contribution payments.
It is necessary to determine whether the disability happened unexpectedly as a result of an injury (work-related or not) or a disease (common or occupational):
If the disability results from an injury or occupational disease, the contribution period is not required, unless it is an absolute permanent disability or serious disability due to a non-work-related injury and the worker is not in an assimilated contributor situation, in which case a generic contribution period of 15 years and a specific contribution period of 3 years within the last 10 years will be required.The "contribution days" are calculated to certify the minimum generic and specific contributory periods (extra payments).
Permanent disability only exists if the checking of incapacitating injuries is accompanied by the right to receive the benefit, therefore meeting the requirements established (contribution period,...).As a result, permanent disability will not be declared in any of its degrees, if the worker does not show the remaining requirements for producing the right to economic benefit.
If the worker's maximum TD period (545 days) has not run out, the days remaining will be assimilated as contribution periods in order to certify the minimum contribution period.
The 10-year period, within which a fifth of the required contribution period must be included, will be calculated from the date when the obligation to pay contributions finished.
One of the requirements for being eligible for this pension is not having reached retirement age, however:
Only contributions made for a job activity and/or contributory unemployment will be valid for these purposes. If a special agreement has be entered into, once the initial refusal decision has been issued, these contributions cannot be calculated to certify the contribution period if the worker's medical condition is identical to that upon which the EVI proposal was based.
55% of the base pension can be increased by a further 20% for workers over 55 years old, who are in a total permanent disability situation, if it is presumed, due to their age, lack of general or specialised preparation and the social and working circumstances of their place of residence, that they have problems in finding a job in an activity different to their normal one. For self-employed workers, there is an additional requirement that the pensioner is not the owner of an agricultural or maritime-fishing business or the owner, tenant, usufructuary or similar of a commercial or industrial establishment.
The substitution of the increase for housing and care at a Social Security System welfare institution upon request by the severely disabled person or any of their legal representatives can be authorised, whenever considered beneficial, and financed at their own cost (|art. 139.4 of the LGSS ).This authorisation will be the responsibility of the managing company or mutual insurance company, where appropriate, which would have been responsible for the permanent disability protection. The request for the substitution can be prepared at any time by the severely disabled person or their legal representatives, who will be able to decide with a binding effect for the managing company or mutual insurance company authorising the substitution, that the request is void.If the hospitalisation refers to welfare institutions and is passed to an Autonomous Community for management, the substitution will not take place. Article 69 of Law 21/2001 revises article 86 LGSS and authorises a separation of the financing of public welfare institutions with this responsibility passed to the Autonomous Communities, with the possibility of substitution therefore being devoid of any content.
Both pensions are compatible with carrying out such activities, whether profit-making or not or compatible with the disability condition, so long as they do not represent a change in the pensioner's ability to work which may give rise to a partial review by the management body. If the activities carried out exceed the established conditions, they will be incompatible and the pension may be suspended.If work able to be included in any Social Security Scheme is carried out, then the worker must be affiliated and pay contributions, as well as communicate the beginning of any job performed for someone else or on a self-employed basis to the National Social Security Institute, unless it is the result of an occupational disease, in which case prior authorisation will be necessary.
Receiving a total permanent disability pension is incompatible with carrying out a job in the same occupational category or group, although it is compatible with any other type of job activity in the same company or another company.However, receiving the 20% increase in the base pension of the total permanent disability is incompatible with working for someone else on a self-employed basis, or Social Security benefits that might result from such work, such as temporary disability or maternity benefit which continues after the working relationship or professional activity, or any unemployment benefit due from such work.
Any work carried out by the pensioner must be communicated to the National Social Security Institute, unless it results from an occupational disease, for which prior authorisation will be necessary.
If when they are disabled the person receiving a total permanent disability benefit loses or is suspended from a job compatible with their pensioner situation, they will be entitled to receive the unemployment benefit due to them, as well as the pension.
Irrespective of the compatibility or incompatibility which, where appropriate, may result in an activity being carried out, only the professional activity needs to be communicated to the relevant management body. However, pensioners with a permanent disability resulting from an occupational disease, will only be able to work for someone else if they have previously obtained authorisation from the INSS.
If the applicant lives outside Spain, it will be the Provincial Office of the INSS in the province where the originator establishes or alleges that the last contributions were made that will determine qualification and reviews.
Article 1 of Royal Decree 1300/95 establishes that the National Social Security Institute will be responsible for evaluating, classifying and reviewing, regardless of the Management Body (INSS or ISM ) or Collaborating Body covering the contingency in question.
It is the responsibility of the INSS to check the existence of these injuries and acknowledge the right to the relevant benefits.
The companies themselves are only authorised to begin the procedure if they collaborate in the management. In addition, they are only authorised to begin the review procedure but not the initial declaration procedure so long as they are responsible for the benefits. The three ways for beginning this recognition are: official, at the request of the worker or their representative and the request of the collaborating bodies (Mutuals for Work-related Injury and Occupational Disease Insurance or collaborating company). The official way includes, amongst other assumptions, the itemised requests of the Employment and Social Security Inspectorate whom the company may approach for this purpose.
Waivers filed by workers, are considered to be excluded from the Social Security scope of protection, since economic benefits from the system are understood to be non-waivable.In accordance with |art. 4 of R.D. 1300/1995, of 21 July, the work-related disability procedure is carried out automatically in all of its stages until completion.
The disability can be reviewed at any time and so long as the disabled person has not reached the age established for receiving the retirement pension (currently 65). As an exception to this principle, the management body can review the degree of permanent disability and, consequently, the economic benefit initially awarded if the disability results from an occupational disease, even if the individual in question is over 65 years old.
Yes, there can be widowhood, orphanage payments and in favour of family members as long as, in addition to the remaining requirements, the deceased accredits a minimum contribution period of 15 years. Assistance in the case of death shall not be applicable because this requires that the deceased be registered or assimilated.
Bonus periods for arduous work or disability cannot be counted as qualifying periods.Nor will the contributions made by the SEPE be taken into account during the receipt of the allowance for the over-52s, as they only pay contributions for retirement. It can include said contributions if the deceased originator, whilst in receipt of said benefit, had signed a Special Agreement to cover the rest of the benefits.
Shall only be effective if their inclusion is prior to the event or, if after, such payment is performed within the regulatory period for it or by virtue of postponement or fractioning provided previously.
In the employee schemes, accidents in route (those suffered when the worker was travelling to or from work) are considered work-related injuries. However, in self-employment schemes (self-employed workers and self-employed sea workers ), accidents in route are excluded from the concept of work-related injuries.
Suicide shall be classified as accident. In order to determine if its occupational or not, it shall be necessary to consider the applicable legal regime for both contingencies. Deaths that have their cause on a specific ingestion of toxic substances in excess (overdose) or of deficient quality (adulteration or bad condition) shall be considered derived from non occupational accident. The connection between the death and ingestion of such substances shall be, in any case, sufficiently accredited with the certificate issued by the forensic doctor or facultative, if appropriate, involved in each case
