What is the Internet?

The Internet is a global means of communication that links together millions of computers all over the world and gives access to a huge, dynamic body of information and interactive services. It is growing day by day, as is the number of people who are using it. It is known as the "network of networks", as it is made up of thousands of computer networks all over the world.

In the case of Social Security, the Internet provides users with interactive services, since it acts as the means for exchanging messages between the users and the TGSS. It also gives them direct access to the RED System web site so that they can carry out affiliation processes and various contribution services.
