Monaco social security Funds

Establishment of a family benefits scheme for self-employed workers: Implementation of law No. 1.493 of 8 July 2020 establishing a family benefits scheme for the self-employed

A practice of of the Sickness, Accident and Maternity Insurance the Self-Employed

Implementation year

Law No. 1493 of 8 July 2020 establishes the payment of family and prenatal benefits by the Principality of Monaco’s Social Security Fund for the Self-Employed (Caisse d’assurance maladie, accident et maternité des travailleurs indépendants – CAMTI). The benefits paid out are of equal value to those in the scheme for employed workers, the Social Services Compensation Fund (Caisse de compensation des services sociaux – CCSS).

The aim was to extend the family benefits service to the entirety of the Principality of Monaco’s working population, including the self-employed.

This proved a real challenge for the Monaco Social Security Funds (Caisses sociales de Monaco – CSM) as the establishment of this new scheme involved:

  • Identifying those eligible;
  • Ensuring a high quality of service (advice, support, etc.) in setting up files; and
  • Being able to begin paying out benefits as soon as the new law came into effect.
