Special social security registry for domestic workers

Implementation year

This is a simplified online registration system which identifies current domestic work employment relationships, by providing notifications of the employment and dismissal of staff.

Those who employ domestic workers are responsible for uploading the relevant information using their tax identification number. The registration acts as a certified declaration and it can be carried out via three channels enabled to this end: the web page of the Federal Public Revenue Administration (Administración Federal de Ingresos Públicos (AFIP)), online banking, and a free telephone line. These options facilitate compliance by employers.

The information is registered in real time in the AFIP data bases. The computer application generates a certificate of employment for the worker, payslips, and the electronic payment receipt of contributions via online banking.

The information registered is consistent and can be accessed by all social security bodies (the National Social Security Administration (Administración Nacional de la Seguridad Social (ANSES)), health insurance, occupational risk insurance companies) that receive funds from the nominative contributions, thereby ensuring the social coverage of the workers and guaranteeing them the full exercise of their rights.
