In May, a total of 3,064,494 people were registered under the Special Regime for Self-Employed Workers of the Spanish Social Security System. This is an increase of 7,221 on the figure recorded in April and is the fourth consecutive month in which the number of people registered under this Special Regime of the Social Security System has risen following seven consecutive months of decline. 23,197 new self-employed workers registered with the system in the last four months.
So far this year, the Reserve Fund has obtained a profit of 1.13 billion euros on its investments. “The System has some undeniable strengths, its reserves being among them”, said Tomás Burgos.
After three months of growth, the Spanish Social Security System is once again approaching 17 million contributors. Furthermore, the number of companies with a contribution account code increased by 3,673 – a little over one hundred per day.
