5th November is the Deadline for Payment of Contributions, FSS Reminds Employers and Residents to Make their Payments as Soon as Possible

2021-10-27

  October is the contribution month of the Social Security System. Due to the epidemic, the payment deadline has been extended to 5th November.  The Social Security Fund (abbreviated to FSS in Macao) reminds that the number of people at the service points is expected to increase when the deadline is approaching.  Employers are uged to make their payments as soon as possible and make use of electronic payment options.  If residents need to visit a service point in person, they are also suggested to use the appointment service.

   All employers are required to pay contributions for their local long-term employees on or before 5th November. If a non-resident worker is hired, the employer must pay the employment fee for the worker as well.  For the payment of contributions, and the employment fee for non-resident workers, employers who use the electronic filing service and submit the employee data within the specified period may use the electronic payment options such as the AutoPay, online banking or ATMs 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) or the BOC EXPRESS.  If there is no change in the employment situation of local long-term employees during the quarter, other employers may also pay their contributions at Municipal Affairs Bureau’s Public Services Centres and sub-stations, or at the service counters of the nine designated banks.

   Similarly, beneficiaries of the arbitrary system may also pay contributions at the self-service machines with FSS’s label, the payment counters, AutoPay or online banking of the nine designated banks above, the BOC EXPRESS, Municipal Affairs Bureau’s Public Services Centres and sub-stations, or a service point of the FSS, using their Macao SAR Resident ID Card numbers. 

  According to the law, employers must pay a late payment interest and a fine for their late payments.  For arbitrary system beneficiaries who are late to pay their contributions, the outstanding contributions cannot be paid unless paid with a late payment interest within two months after the expiration of the statutory time limit.
