January is a Contribution Month and FSS Reminds Residents to Pay Contributions on Time


January is a contribution month of the Social Security Fund. Employers are required to pay in this month the contributions of the obligatory system for their local long-term employees for the fourth quarter of 2018. If they have hired a non-resident worker, they are also required to pay the employment fee as well. In addition, beneficiaries of the arbitrary system are also required to pay contributions in January. To save time waiting in line, the Social Security Fund (abbreviated to FSS in Macao) calls for members of the public to make full use of the electronic payment options. If they want to make the payment in person, they should pay attention to the peak of the flow at the end of the month, and they are advised to make the payment as early as possible.

For employers who have already applied for the electronic filing service, and beneficiaries of the arbitrary system, they are advised to use the AutoPay service of nine designated banks (including Bank of China Macau Branch, Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (Macau) Ltd., Banco Comercial de Macau, Tai Fung Bank, Banco Nacional Ultramarino, OCBC Wing Hang Bank, Macau Chinese Bank, Luso International Banking Limited and Delta Asia Bank) as much as possible, or make use of the following payment channels:

  1. Jetco ATMs with Jetco logo or online banking (including Bank of China Macau Branch, Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (Macau) Ltd., Banco Comercial de Macau, Tai Fung Bank, Banco Nacional Ultramarino and OCBC Wing Hang Bank);
  2. Self-service machines of BOC EXPRESS;
  3. Service points of the FSS (including FSS temporary office at Tap Seac, FSS office at NAPE located on the 13th floor of the China Civil Plaza, Areia Preta Service Centre of the Macao SAR (Area of Social Security and Employment);
  4. Instituto para os Assuntos Municipais' Public Services Centres and its sub-station;
  5. The payment counters of the nine designated banks above.

Beneficiaries of the arbitrary system can also make their payments with the UnionPay QuickPass Card or MACAU Pass Card through the self-service machines with FSS contribution logo.

For employers who have not applied for the electronic filing service, they can pay the contributions and the employment fee for non-resident workers at the service points of the FSS. The contributions of local long-term employees (with no staff change during the quarter) can also be paid at the Instituto para os Assuntos Municipais' Public Services Centres and its sub-station, or at the nine designated banks.

In addition, if a beneficiary or an employer chooses to make a payment by AutoPay, the bank will deduct the related amount on the last working day of the contribution month. Beneficiaries and employers are therefore advised to prepare sufficient funds in their accounts in due course to ensure that the money can be deducted on time.
