Until February 1, self-insured persons can change the type of insurance, the National Revenue Agency reminds. Self-insured persons must be insured in the "State Social Security Pensions" fund, and may choose to be insured in the "General Illness and Maternity" fund.
Self-insured persons who choose to make insurance contributions also to the "General illness and maternity" fund can benefit from all insured social risks (excluding occupational accidents and occupational diseases and unemployment) of DOO. The other option is to make insurance contributions at a lower rate only to the Pension Fund of the LLC (for disability due to general illness, old age and death). However, in this case, the NRA reminds, the self-insured do not have the right to monetary benefits from the DOO in certain situations (for example, the so-called "maternity" during pregnancy and childbirth).
The type of insurance for self-insured persons can be changed for each calendar year, if a declaration is submitted according to a model approved by the executive director of the NRA. The deadline for submitting the document is January 31 of the respective year. This year, January 31 falls on a Sunday, so the deadline for declaration and payment is extended to February 1.
Within 7 days of starting or resuming work, self-insured persons determine the type of their insurance by submitting a declaration according to an established model to the competent territorial directorate of the National Revenue Agency or through the e-services of the revenue agency with a Personal Identification Code /PIK/ or electronic signature /KEP/.
In the case of interruption and resumption of the relevant work activity, as well as when starting another work activity during the calendar year, the already chosen and declared type of insurance cannot be changed.
