With 13 votes in favor, 1 against and 0 abstentions, the Economy, Banking, Finance and Financial Intelligence Commission today approved the ruling that authorizes the Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF) to make withdrawals in favor of EsSalud and pension contributions of the workers of the public sector.
The legislative initiative seeks to streamline permanently the effective payments of the monthly contributions of the workers of the public sector corresponding to the Contributory Regime of the Social Security of Health in charge of EsSalud, the National Pension System (SNP) and the Private Pension System (SPP).
The approved text, which will now go to the plenary session of Congress for discussion, states that the employer generates the monthly payroll (PLAME) and sends it to the National Superintendence of Tax Administration (Sunat). Once this has been done, the MEF, through the General Directorate of Public Budget and the Integrated Fund Administration System – SIAF, must make the withdrawals that correspond to the three regimes established by this law, corresponding to the mandatory contribution for EsSalud the ONP and the AFPs.
Likewise, it is specified that the MEF must make the deductions that correspond to the payments of the installments of the Debt Disclosure Regime for Contributions to EsSalud and the ONP and the Regime for Rescheduling Payment of Social Security Contributions to the Pension Fund (Repro-AFP).
“The Ministry of Economy and Finance makes the deduction directly from the budget item assigned for the payment of the aforementioned debts, in accordance with the guidelines established for this purpose in the Regulations of this law,” the opinion states.
