Autonomous women will benefit from maternity without having to cease their activity

Autonomous women will benefit from maternity without having to cease their activity


Autonomous women who return from maternity leave can benefit from the bonus in their fees for common and professional contingencies, without the need to have withdrawn in the Autonomous Regime, as reported this Friday by the Ministry of Labor, Migration and Social Security.

In a statement, the Ministry has explained that this new criterion has retroactive effect with effect from January 1, so that the beneficiaries are not only the self-employed who join the work from now, but also those who have done so since the beginning of the year.

In this sense, the General Treasury of the Social Security will identify in the coming weeks the autonomous ones that are entitled to the maternity bonus from January 1 and will return the corresponding amounts that have not been applied. Until now the autonomous ones could be rewarded in their quotas after the motherhood if they were previously in the low in your activity.

This measure, fruit of the agreement signed with the self-employed associations last December, establishes that, in the two years following the stop produced by the maternity, the autonomous one that rejoins the minimum contribution base will be able to benefit from a bonus of the monthly fee of 60 euros during the twelve months following his return to work. If you opt for a higher contribution base, a bonus of 80% will be applied to the contribution for common contingencies.

This clarification by the Ministry occurs after the National Federation of Autonomous Workers (ATA) denounced a few weeks ago that the Government was not complying with the measure agreed on the flat rate after motherhood, adoption or fostering of a minor without having to cease previously in the activity or close your business.

The Ministry's data shows that, at the end of 2018, a total of 4,933 self-employed persons were benefiting from a reduced contribution due to their return to work after the cessation of their maternity activity.
