Definition of concepts
- Worker affiliated to the Social Security system
- Person that exercises a labour activity in exchange for payment that is affiliated to the general Social Security scheme and the special scheme for mining and coal workers that are working or in similar situations to being working such as temporary incapacity, suspended by reasons of redundancy, partially unemployed, etc. Not included are workers that are fully unemployed, workers with special agreements, workers for companies covered by restructuring plans and workers receiving aid in the form of early retirement payments or in other situations that do not have an effect on contributions. The same person is accounted for as many times as they have situations in which they contribute, whether they have several labour activities in a single regime or in various.
- Foreign worker affiliated to Social Security
- Foreign citizen that resides in or is legally located in Spain and has obtained administrative authorisation to work, in the cases where this is a legal or regulatory requirement. This situation equates them to a Spanish worker affiliated to Social Security.
Applications and registrations of foreign workers, both self-employed or as employees, must be accompanied by documentation accrediting nationality, and other than the case of workers to whom EU regulations are applicable, the corresponding work permit or a document accrediting that they are exempted from the obligation to have one, as well as the details and documents required of Spanish workers.
Foreigners that require administrative authorisation prior to any activity in Spain and that do not possess this authorisation are not included in the Social Security System, notwithstanding that they may be considered included for the purposes of obtaining certain benefits in accordance with the stipulations of the law.
The number of affiliates does not necessarily correspond to that of workers: the same person is accounted for as many times as they have obligations to make contributions.
