New Policy Adjusts Insurance Payments Made by Workers

New Policy Adjusts Insurance Payments Made by WorkersUnder a new policy that took effect will now adjust insurance payments made by migrant workers. No matter how long a migrant worker paid for their insurance in the city they worked in will no longer be reset to zero if they moved to a different city in Guangdong Province.

Before when a worker moves to one city to a different one in the province, the payment period in the first city is nullified and their payment history will start anew which is zero at the new city. The old policy meant that a majority of workers especially migrants will not get medical benefits outside of their hometown of they moved from a Guangdong city to another. The new policy will keep the workers payment history on record in the cities that they lived and worked. This will allow for them to return to these cities to claim medical benefits if they made insurance payments for the number of years that they lived there.

The new policy will also lessen the relocation impacts on workers who frequently change cities because of work. Workers who didn’t make any payments on their insurance in the province for 10 years can avail of the basic medical benefits only on the city where their permanent residency status is registered.
