If I am a self-employed sea worker, how does the content of the ESS/214/2018 Order affect me?
Self-employed workers in contribution group 1, like other self-employed workers, are required to manage all their procedures, including the receipt of notifications, by electronic means, from 1 October 2018. Self-employed workers in contribution group 2 or 3 are not required to use electronic means, but may access the same services voluntarily.
Where can I manage my procedures?
As of 1 October 2018, the services on the RED system will be operational. In order to use the RED system (Electronic Data Transfer), you must be properly authorised. To facilitate the procedures, an authorised RED may act on behalf of the self-employed sea worker through this system. The services that allow the management of the assignment or reassignment of the Affiliation Number (NAF) of the self-employed worker to an authorised RED are located in the Social Security Electronic Office (SEDESS).
Currently through the services available in the Electronic Office.
In the Social Security Electronic Office (SEDESS) , the self-employed sea worker can perform their procedures directly using the available electronic services, by submitting applications by Electronic Registration (ER). You can use the digital certificate and electronic DNI to access the Electronic Registration.
Online services similar to those currently in place for the other self-employed workers will soon be available for self-employed workers in the Special Scheme for Sea Workers.
How do I access my notifications?
For the receipt and signature of notifications and communications from the Social Security Administration, the Telematic Notifications service is located in the SEDESS. A valid authentication system must be available: Electronic certificate accepted by Social Security, Electronic DNI o Permanent Cl@ve (with advanced registration) supported by one-time PINs sent by SMS to the citizen's mobile phone from social security. This system also enables access to the signature in the cloud.
Through the Consult and sign telematic notifications service, self-employed sea workers, as well as their person authorised to access the system or, if applicable, their proxy, may access and sign the notifications.
