11 OCT 2018
From 1 October, all self-employed workers must complete their procedures electronically with the Social Security. This obligation is determined by Ministerial Order ESS/214/2018, which granted a period of 6 months (from 1 April to 30 September 2018) for self-employed professionals to adapt.

Who is affected by this obligation?

The regulations affect all self-employed workers, as well as workers in the Special System of Agricultural Workers (SETA) and workers in the Special Regime for Seafarers.
There will be no postal notifications informing of this measure and, therefore, the self-employed must already put it into practice from the date on which it enters into force.

Which electronic channels can the self-employed use to carry out their procedures?

The Social Security Treasury has made two channels available to the self-employed:
- The RED System (Electronic Data Retransmission), through which the authorized RED acts on behalf of the self-employed worker.
- The Social Security Electronic Headquarters, where the worker can carry out formalities directly with the Social Security General Treasury by means of the electronic services available.

What is necessary to carry out the procedures by telematic means?

To access the Electronic Headquarters, it is necessary to have one of the following identity authentication systems:
- Electronic ID
- Electronic certificate accepted by Social Security
- Cl@ve System
If you are self-employed and have not yet adapted to this obligation, we take care of all the formalities you need. For more information, do not hesitate to contact our Labour Department (
