Social Security

In Brazil all self-employed individuals as well as employees of companies must pay social security contributions to the National Institute of Social Security (Instituto Nacional do Seguro Social – INSS) of the Ministry of Social Welfare (Ministério da Previdência Social). This contribution guarantees that the contributor or their family will receive money in the event of illness, injury, accident, pregnancy or death of the payee. An employee will pay between 8 and 11 percent; a self-employed individual will pay 20 percent.

Self-employed workers can register to pay into the Social Welfare fund online (in Portuguese)

The Ministry of Social Welfare has a helpline for information. Calls are free unless calling from a mobile phone.
