The postal department will directly receive them after completion and will directly send them back to the business."

220.127.116.11. Difficulties in participating in social insurance for employees in non-state enterprises
Recently, in the process of participating in social insurance, non-state enterprises have encountered many difficulties. Qualitative research results from document analysis and in-depth interviews with leaders of non-state enterprises show that:
Firstly , information technology and software to perform electronic transactions are not convenient and effective: Some businesses also encounter difficulties when performing electronic transactions through software of the social insurance industry. Possible:
- The transmission line is slow, there are errors and not regularly updated: The process of declaring labor changes using electronic transaction records faces many difficulties due to slow transmission lines, staff handling and following up on resolution. The documents are still slow, leading to businesses submitting 15 days later and still not receiving an appointment letter notifying them of the processing of their documents. Enterprises cannot submit additional documents within the month to match the data on insurance. Leading to the situation: incurring unnecessary interest and penalties for businesses; In addition, if the enterprise does not make timely corrections within the month, the enterprise must redo the entire dossier the following month, resulting in many other procedures. The data declaration software (Ivan) is not regularly updated with the latest data, the information on the software is not complete, there is no information about foreign employees, or the software does not automatically withdraw sick leave for employees 14 day. NVBH still has to update manually.
- Electronic transactions through social insurance industry software are not convenient and difficult to use.
“In the process of implementing social insurance procedures using electronic software, when making transactions, the new software is often updated regularly. When the registration increase or decrease is completed, it is not possible to confirm whether the registration increase or decrease was successful. comparison
After entering the changed data into the software, the insurance agency encountered many difficulties and took a lot of time."

- The application to notify application results via email is not yet available, so businesses must regularly update the software to monitor, check application status and download results.
- When encountering problems using software, social insurance support is still slow, sometimes businesses have to submit hard documents, wasting time and effort, incurring additional costs for businesses, while for other businesses, With few workers, electronic transactions don't really bring much change.
“ The new declaration software can only be used for social insurance collection. Other functions are still not usable while the declaration software being applied (TS24) still has many inadequacies in the declaration process. The enterprise asked the social insurance agency and was told that other functions (health insurance, social insurance regime) have not been applied and the enterprise does not know when it can be applied, it still takes time to prepare paper documents and travel time. and submit applications directly between the enterprise and the social insurance agency.”

Second , the processing and return of documents by post by the social insurance agency is still slow, causing difficulties for businesses in paying benefits to employees. To save maximum travel and waiting time when participating in transactions with the social insurance agency, Vietnam Social Insurance has implemented a method of receiving documents and returning administrative procedure results via the electronic transaction system (up to now, it has been implemented). 90% of businesses participate); For documents that have not been processed through the electronic transaction system, the social insurance agency will deliver and receive at the enterprise through postal delivery services (postal system), the enterprise does not have to go directly to the social insurance agency to deliver them. pandemic. However, many businesses encounter difficulties because implementing this form depends on the post office. All transactions with the social insurance agency through the post office are only favorable when the documents have no errors, in case of mistakes. If errors must be corrected, transactions will be carried out through the post office, causing costly and time-consuming expenses, even exceeding the deadline, affecting the payment of benefits to employees.
Third , for the Social Insurance policy, many businesses responded that the procedures were still cumbersome, going through many unnecessary and complicated steps.
“ Specifically, for sickness and maternity benefits, the one-time benefits will be resolved for men whose wife has given birth but the wife does not participate in Social Insurance. Because Social Insurance is managed by province, the wife cannot be checked. of male workers if participating in insurance in another province. Or in the case of an employee whose child is sick, they do not want to go to the hospital because of the cumbersome and complicated procedures, so they go to a private facility for examination. Because they do not have the right to issue social insurance leave papers, private medical examination facilities are only allowed to issue sick child books to employees. According to regulations, the social insurance company does not accept sick children's books, so the employee's benefits have been narrowed. Employees who take sick leave for more than 14 days must wait for the Insurance agency to complete the settlement of their sick benefits before being notified of a reduction, causing difficulties for businesses.

“In Clause 2, Article 2, the 2014 Law on Social Insurance stipulates that employees who are foreign citizens working in Vietnam with a work permit issued by a competent Vietnamese agency can participate in compulsory social insurance according to regulations. government. However, this regulation can only be applied to foreign workers from countries with which Vietnam has not reached a general agreement on social insurance to ensure benefits for these foreign workers when they return home or transfer. to work in another country. However, these agreements have not yet been concluded.
In addition, some businesses also believe that the social insurance agency has not confirmed the results of receiving documents, and that arising problems and problems of the business have not been satisfactorily resolved by the social insurance agency.
Fourth , with regard to health insurance policies, businesses and employees still encounter many difficulties when performing medical examination with health insurance cards such as: referral process, not organizing medical examination outside of office hours and on weekends, discrepancies. information about the name of the unit in the health insurance certificate, handing over health insurance cards to businesses, revoking health insurance cards of employees who quit their jobs, limiting the scope of initial medical registration...
Fifth , for the Unemployment Insurance policy, the difficulties and obstacles that businesses encounter are mainly in the procedures for resolving unemployment insurance regimes such as: unemployment registration, document appraisal, subsidy settlement... there are also overlapping regulations, workers
It takes time to travel and wait, some agencies even handle the problem late, exceeding the prescribed number of days. In cases where the unemployment insurance benefit period has odd months reserved, the employee must bring the social insurance book to the old company to finalize, causing the employee to have to travel a lot, wasting time and money."
“The time prescribed in the law for resolving insurance procedures is reasonable and reasonable. However, the insurance agency did not follow this procedure properly. The actual processing time is always twice or three times longer than the prescribed time.”
"The time to print social insurance books for new employees is a bit long. Normally, it takes 2 months for employees to have the books."
"The Insurance Agency often returns results later than the appointment letter (an average of 5 days)"; "The process of the social insurance accounting department transferring money to employees' social insurance benefits is still slow, usually 1 month to 2 months after the application is approved."
Time to print health cards for new employees: it takes nearly 02 months from the date of sending valid documents. "The time to resolve the unemployment insurance regime is still long and the procedures are complicated."

It is worth noting that some businesses believe that returning results via post or electronic transaction software is often slower than submitting documents directly to the social insurance agency:
“If you submit your application directly to the insurance agency, the time to return the results will be more timely. Submitting documents through insurance software takes longer, sometimes more than 1 week."

In addition, according to the survey results, some businesses believe that the coordination between departments of the local Social Insurance unit is not good, especially the one-stop shop staff and other departments.
“ One-stop officers receive and resolve administrative procedures in accordance with regulations. However, the results returned to the unit did not comply with regulations on resolution time limits. The solution is not really flexible and meets the wishes of the Enterprise." PVS. Male, social insurance officer, non-state enterprise.

One of the reasons why workers participating in social insurance is so low is because there are still many workers who are not fully aware of and do not care about this important social security policy. Many workers even want the business where they work to not participate in social insurance so that their monthly social insurance payment will not be deducted. Some workers want to not participate in social insurance to receive a few hundred thousand dong more, not knowing that the amount of money they lose is much larger both now and in the future. They do not realize that social insurance gives employees benefits that no other savings can compare to. The results of in-depth interviews show:
"I don't actively care much. I only know that every month when I receive my salary, I have to save money to pay social insurance. I don't really care how much or what the coefficient is." .
PVS. Male worker, 25 years old at a non-state enterprise
"Even if I don't participate in social insurance, I can save an amount of money every month and not have to pay social insurance. You said that in difficult economic times like this, I lack money every month. If I don't pay social insurance, I naturally save money." save some money".
PVS. Female worker, 26 years old at a non-state enterprise
The results of in-depth interviews also show that many workers still have misconceptions about participating in social insurance: they consider saving to be more beneficial than participating in social insurance.
"I see that saving money every month is more beneficial than participating in social insurance because I can manage this source of money and withdraw it whenever I like."
PVS. Male, 28 years old, worker at a non-state enterprise. Qualitative research results also show:
Most workers understand their responsibilities and rights when participating in social insurance, but due to pressure from work, employees do not dare to fight with employers to demand the right to participate in social insurance.
