When a self-employed person falls ill, he/she has the right to receive a subsidy, but in order to do so, he/she must have contributed 180 days in the last five years, and be up to date with the payments of the quotas of the Special Regime for Self-Employed Persons (RETA).
In this case, 60% of the contribution base of the month prior to the sick leave is paid, and from the twentieth day until the moment of discharge 75% is paid.
If the sick leave is caused by an accident at work or occupational disease and contributions have been paid for this contingency, 75% is paid from the first day.
In order to collect the benefit, the following documentation must be submitted to the Mutual Insurance Company:
- Form provided by the Mutual.
- Proof of payment of the last RETA receipts.
- Medical leave report.
- Declaration of the status of the activity.
It is important to present the confirmation reports on time and to attend the check-ups at the Mutual Insurance Company in order to receive the benefit on a regular basis.
