Social Insurance

Generally, to be entitled to social security you have to first pay social insurance contributions for certain period of time. The entitlement is therefore not established automatically, but it is necessary to have social insurance beforehand. The entitlements to particular social security benefits are established differently depending on the type of benefit. In each individual case it is necessary to check the conditions directly at the MIC or on the website of the Social Insurance Company www.socpoist.sk.

Social insurance benefits are:

  • sickness insurance
  • pension insurance benefits
  • accident insurance benefits
  • surety insurance benefits
  • unemployment insurance benefits

Please find more information in our booklet "Welcome to Slovakia"

The maternity benefit is a type of social insurance – sickness insurance, in which the insured person contributes to the social insurance system and in case the insured person meets the conditions for payment of maternity benefit, this benefit will be provided. Sickness insurance is a type of insurance intended for the case of income reduction or income loss and for ensuring income in case of temporary incapacity to work, pregnancy or maternity.

Pregnancy benefit is a benefit provided within the social (sickness) insurance, in which the insured person contributes to the social security system and if she meets the conditions for payment of pregnancy benefit, this benefit will be provided. The purpose of the pregnancy benefit is to provide the recipient with an income to compensate for increased expenses during her pregnancy.

ATTENTION: This benefit is not to be confused with the pregnancy scholarship provided by universities to pregnant students.
