    having just become completely legal,:righton::chinrub: I am thinking about paying for social security:chinrub:. Does anybody have details about it? I am looking for the following info as the links I have don't work:confused:

    Max payment per month?
    Can family use medical insurance?
    I'm 50, is it worth paying for retirement ?(benefit looks low)
    Does my school have to contribute? (I don't think they will be happy, and I'm happy for them not to pay)
    Can I have medical, life, and unemployment without retirement?

    I have tried links from various forums but none of them work

    Thanks in advance:wai3:

    At the moment, 600 baht you have to pay and 600 baht your school unless you earn less than 15,000 baht per month. Officially, it's 4% of your salary but capped at 15,000 max.
    No idea, I am not married nor do I have kids in Thailand. Ask at your local SSO.
    You have no choice. There's only the full package but for retirement benefits you have to contribute for at least 180 months; that's 15 years.

    See above.


    Your school is obliged to register you with the SSO within 30 days after starting your employment. If they fail to do so or even refuse as it happened to me, you have to got to the local SSO and complain. That got me in but not my colleagues who didn't complain. TiT and the law is sometimes obeyed, sometimes bent and sometimes ignored whatever suits best in a given situation.

    I found this brochure in English at my local Social Security Office. It was published in Jan 2013.
