Common provisions


The special agreement is a situation assimilated to Inscription, resulting from a voluntary agreement between the subscriber and the Social Security General Treasury, with the subscriber being obliged to pay the corresponding contributions at his/her own expense, in order to retain the right to benefit coverage for the contingencies covered by the special agreement.

However, there are exceptions, such as the ERE agreements whereby the contribution is paid by the company until the worker included in the ERE reaches 61/63 years of age, or the agreements for non-professional carers, which are currently financed by the IMSRESO.

Purpose of concluding a special agreement

By signing a special agreement with the Social Security, a person begins or prolongs the status of being registered or assimilated to that of being registered to the corresponding Social Security Scheme, for the activity that the interested party carries out or has previously carried out, with the aim of continuing to pay contributions for the contingencies protected in the agreement. The purpose of the special agreement is therefore twofold:

  • Continuing to pay contributions to the Social Security Scheme under the scope of the agreement.
  • Benefitting from the coverage of the contingencies protected by the agreement: Permanent Disability, Death and Survival arising from Common Disease and Non-Work-Related Injury, Retirement and Social Services, under the conditions and to the extent provided for in the Social Security Scheme within the scope of the agreement.
    In general, benefits for Temporary Disability, childbirth and child care and Risk during Pregnancy, Unemployment protection, the Wage Guarantee Fund and vocational training are excluded.
