Social security is a system that ensures you have an income in certain situations. Social security enables you to accumulate certain social rights, such as unemployment benefit, sickness benefit, pension or child allowance.
The total contributions to be paid differ from person to person but a minimum of 13.07% is always deducted from your gross wage as a basic amount.
Servants who have no legal residence: If you have no legal residence, it is not possible to register with social security, which means you are not entitled to benefits. This is why your employer must always pay a full gross wage without deductions or discounts.
In the case of diplomatic domestic staff there are certain rules that apply in connection with access to Belgian social security.
