The Prime Minister signed the Decision No. 08/2015/QD-TTg dated March 09,2015 on piloting e-transactions in implementation of procedures for participating in social, health and unemployment insurance and requesting the grant of social insurance books and health insurance cards.
In accordance with the Decision, an employer conducting e-transactions in the field of social insurance must have a digital certificate; have access to, and being able to use, the Internet; having registered with the Vietnam Social Security a permanent email address. The employer may select to conduct e-transactions in the field of social insurance directly via the website of Vietnam Social Security or via the portal of an I-VAN service provider.
For e-transactions in implementation of procedures, employers don’t conduct transactions with paper dossiers for procedures which have already been registered for performance and are being performed by electronic means and prepare and submit a paper social insurance dossier to their managing social insurance agencies within 5 working days after the deadline for submission of electronic social insurance dossiers in case the electronic data interchange system or technical infrastructure incident has not yet been handled by such deadline.
Electronic social insurance dossier submitters may conduct e-transactions via the Vietnam Social Security’s website or I-VAN service providers’ portals 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, even on weekends, holidays and New Year festivals. The Vietnam Social Security or I-VAN service providers shall send submitters notices of certification of receipt of electronic social insurance dossiers via email within 15 minutes after receipt.
This Decision is effective from May 1, 2015, to the effective date of the Government’s Decree stipulating the order and procedures for participation in, and settlement of benefits under, social security regimes by the mode of e- transaction.
