October is a Contribution Month, FSS Reminds Employers and Residents to Pay Contributions on Time

2020-10-06

October is a contribution month of the Social Security Fund (abbreviated to FSS in Macao).  In this month, employers are required to pay obligatory system contributions for their local long-term employees for the third quarter of 2020.  If a non-resident worker is hired, the employer is required to pay the employment fee as well.   In addition, arbitrary system beneficiaries are also required to pay contributions in October.  To reduce queuing time, it is recommended that employers and residents make their payments as early as possible and use the appointment service or get a ticket online.  Employers and arbitrary system beneficiaries already applied for the use of electronic filing service should try to make their payments by electronic means.  In addition, the FSS reminded that St. Lazarus Parish Field Office located at Rua de Eduardo Marques has now reopened and the temporary office at Tap Seac has already closed.

Beneficiaries of the arbitrary system can use their Macao SAR Resident ID Card numbers to make their payment in the following ways:

  1. Self-service machines with FSS’s logo;
  2. Payment counters, AutoPay or online banking of designated banks, and BOC EXPRESS;
  3. Municipal Affairs Bureau's Public Services Centres and sub-stations;
  4. Service points of the FSS, including St. Lazarus Parish Field Office, FSS office at NAPE located on the 13th floor of the China Civil Plaza Building, Macao Government Services Centre (Social Security Affairs) and Macao Government Services Centre in Islands (Social Security Affairs).

Regarding contributions of the obligatory system, employers who have applied for the use of electronic filling service are advised to use the AutoPay service as much as possible, or use the payment channels mentioned above (except self-service machines).  Employers who have not yet applied for the use of electronic filing service can pay contributions and the employment fee at a service point of the FSS, and if there is no staff change of local long-term employees during the quarter, the payment can also be made at Municipal Affairs Bureau's Public Services Centres and sub-stations, or at the payment counters of designated banks.

In addition, beneficiaries or employers are also reminded that if they choose to pay by AutoPay, the relevant bank will deduct the amount on the last working day of the contribution month, and so they should make sure that there is enough money in the account for deduction.

If a person needs to make the payment in person at a service point of the FSS, it is recommended to make an appointment in advance or get a ticket online through the "Conta única de acesso comum" mobile app or the website (booking.gov.mo) in order to reduce queueing time.

For more information, please visit the website of the FSS at www.fss.gov.mo or call 2853 2850 during office hours for enquiries.
