cases covered by the self-employed quota


After learning that Social Security website has enabled a new tool to calculate the monthly payment quotas of autonomous workers, according to the contribution base chosen by them, the question immediately arises about What do these fees cover?

It is necessary to remember that the fees paid monthly, in general, are a contribution made by the autonomous worker to cover, fundamentally, four contingencies: common, professional, cessation of activity and those related to trainingentrepreneurial promotion and career guidance.

In other words, each self-employed person will be covered, thanks to their monthly payments, in the first place, for common contingencies. These refer to insurance before the inability to work due to non-occupational illness or accident. On the other hand, professional contingencies cover the self-employed worker in those scenarios related to a occupational disease or accident at work.

Thirdly, the contribution for cessation of activity covers the self-employed in case you definitively end your professional activity. Lastly, the contribution that frames the training measures, entrepreneurial promotion and professional guidance guarantees access to an instruction that makes it possible to enter the labor market.


It is important to emphasize that there are certain exceptions for the payment of the four contributions indicated. According to Social Security, for those workers who are registered in other schemes or in the Special System for Self-Employed Agricultural Workers (SETA) the contribution for common contingencies is not mandatory.

Likewise, for self-employed workers who make part of the SETA, or are members of cooperatives, or have an intercooperative system of social benefits complementary to the Public System, payment of the contribution for professional contingencies is optional. Finally, for the self-employed who enjoy the flat ratepayment for cessation of activity and training is not mandatory.
