Voice of the Straits Radio Reporter: The "Interim Measures for Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwanese Residents to Participate in Social Insurance in the Mainland (Mainland)" has been officially released. Participating in social security in the mainland is a matter of immediate practical interest to Taiwan compatriots. What tangible benefits will Taiwan compatriots gain? Thank you.
Zhu Fenglian: On December 3, the relevant responsible comrades of the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security and the National Medical Insurance Bureau have made a detailed introduction and interpretation of the background and relevant circumstances of the introduction of the Interim Measures. Here, I mainly introduce what tangible benefits Taiwanese compatriots living, employment, entrepreneurship, and studying in the mainland can gain from it.
The first thing to explain is that the social insurance system is a social welfare system provided by the state. The promulgation of the "Interim Measures" is a systemic arrangement to implement the 19th National Congress of the People's Republic of China on the provision of equal treatment to Taiwanese compatriots on the mainland. It means that Taiwan compatriots who work, live and study in the mainland can enjoy the relevant welfare system provided by the state just like the mainland residents.
The "Interim Measures" considers the personnel applicable to Taiwan compatriots very well, and has achieved full coverage of Taiwan compatriots insured on the mainland. It is not only applicable to various forms of employment Taiwan compatriots, such as unit employment, flexible employment, self-employment, but also to unemployed Taiwan compatriots living in the mainland, and Taiwan students studying in mainland universities. For the Taiwan compatriots who participate in the basic endowment insurance for urban and rural residents and the basic medical insurance for urban and rural residents in the mainland, the financial authorities at all levels in the mainland will provide corresponding financial subsidies in accordance with regulations to protect the social security level of Taiwan compatriots.
Taking into account the pressure to reduce the pressure of Taiwan compatriots and the actual need to study and return to Taiwan, the Interim Measures made special arrangements for Taiwan compatriots to participate in social security in the mainland. If the Taiwan compatriots do not choose to have double insurance in the mainland and Taiwan, they can rely on the certificates issued by the relevant authorized institutions to not participate in the endowment insurance and unemployment insurance in the mainland, which effectively solves the dual insurance issue that the Taiwan compatriots are concerned about. If the Taiwan compatriots leave the mainland before meeting the required conditions for receiving pensions, they can choose to keep the account, continue to pay when they re-employ or live in the mainland, or they can choose to apply for a written termination of the social security relationship and a one-time withdrawal of the savings in the social security personal account. amount.
The "Interim Measures" also clearly stipulates that Taiwan compatriots have the right to participate in five social insurances. Among them, maternity insurance and work injury insurance are paid by employers in the mainland. Taiwanese compatriots do not need to pay any fees at all. The scope and intensity of social security covered by mainland China. (China Taiwan Net Jia Ruolan)
