Remarks/Points to Note

  1. For beneficiaries of the old system (already enrolled before 1 January 2011), if they meet the contribution requirements for applying for old-age pension (at least 60 months of contributions) /after they start to receive old-age pension, the pension amount will not be adjusted if they continue to pay arbitrary system contributions, but they can continue to enjoy the protection of other social security benefits. In this case, the payment of old-age pension and sickness allowance shall not overlap with each other according to the law, but the beneficiary can still choose to receive the more favourable benefit.
  2. For beneficiaries of the new system (enrolled on or after 1 January 2011), the old-age pension amount is calculated proportionally by dividing the number of actual contribution months by 360. If the beneficiary continues to pay arbitrary system contributions after he/she has started to receive old-age pension, the pension amount can be adjusted in April each year until there are 360 months of contributions. At the same time, continuing to make contributions allows the beneficiary to continue to enjoy the protection of other social security benefits. In this case, the payment of old-age pension and sickness allowance shall not overlap with each other according to the law, but the beneficiary can still choose to receive the more favourable benefit.

If the interest calculated is less than 50 patacas, it will also be levied at 50 patacas (must be paid at a service point of the Social Security Fund);
    2. The reason for failing to pay contributions belongs to a force majeure situation accepted by the Administrative Committee of the Social Security Fund.

Remarks/Points to Note

  1. Late payment of contributions
    If the contributions are not paid within the statutory period, the default contributions cannot be rectified except in the following circumstances:

    1. The contributions and a late payment interest must be paid within two months after the expiration of the statutory period. The monthly interest rate for late payment is 3% of the total amount of contributions due, where a fraction of a month shall be counted as a full month. If the calculated amount of interest is less than 50 patacas, it will also be levied at 50 patacas.
    2. The reason for failing to pay contributions belongs to a force majeure situation accepted by the Administrative Committee of the Social Security Fund.
