The ACDC law office advises:

Question: "I am 30 years old, I am a free worker who currently needs to participate in voluntary social insurance." May I ask if free workers like me are subject to voluntary social insurance? Thank you!

Law Department - ACDC advises:

Participants of voluntary social insurance (social insurance) are specified in Clause 4, Article 2 of the Law on social insurance in 2014 and Clause 1, Article 2 of the Government's Decree No. 134/2015/ND-CP of December 29, 2015, Clause 1 Article 2 of the Circular No. 01/2016/TT-BLDTBXH of February 18, 2016 of the Minister of Labor, War Invalids and Social Affairs detailing and guiding the enforcement of a number of provisions of the Law on Voluntary Social Insurance.

Accordingly, participants of voluntary social insurance are Vietnamese citizens aged full 15 years or older and not subject to compulsory social insurance in accordance with the law on social insurance (not subject to the provisions of Clause 1, Article 2 of the Law on social insurance in 2014), including the following subjects:

- Employees working under labor contracts with a term of less than 03 months before January 1, 2018; employees working under labor contracts with a term of less than 01 month from January 1, 2018 then on;

- Non-full-time activists in villages, hamlets, villages, squirrels, villages, street population populations, neighborhoods and neighborhoods;

- Domestic workers;

- Participants in production, business and service activities without salary;

- Employees who have qualified for age but have not yet met the conditions on payment time to enjoy their pension in accordance with the law on social insurance;

Compare the above provisions with the case of siblings, siblings this year 30 years old are free workers, self-employed. Therefore, you are subject to voluntary social insurance specified at Point e, Clause 1, Article 2 of circular No. 01/2016/TT-BLDTBXH.
