Chinese Social Insurance Summary?
« on: February 29, 2024, 05:08:28 AM »
Hi Everyone,

1. About two years ago, my wife got me on the Chinese social insurance.

So far, it has been a great thing:

- Medical expenses are reimbursed far more than they were with private insurance.
- If I am disabled or die, my family gets payment
- All my tax money is paid into funds, so I can later get old age social security pension

2. I am kicking myself, as no one even told me about this for the eight years in China. Contrast that to Korea, where all workers (both domestic and foreign) get this from the first day.

3. Is there any book, website, etc., that tells me exactly what I am entitled to? Exactly what do I get? How transferable is this insurance from one workplace to another?

Thanks

Every time I've had a question other than the most basic, the best way I've been able to get an answer is to ask the local Social Insurance Bureau directly.  You may be able to book an appointment online.  If so, get one as early as possible in the day.  If online appointment reservations aren't an option in your city, find out what time they open in the morning and try to show up a few minutes before. Bring a list of your questions.
