In the General Letter No. 4909683 dated 23/3/2020, SSI has announced the deadlines and instructions with regards to the monthly premium and service declarations of the employers who made their applications for benefiting from the previous premium promotion, support and discounts within the legal period.
However, they need some revisions with regards to the deadlines due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Based on this, SGK has published a new announcement dated 22.05.2020 and numbered 6237651. The relevant provisions of the SSI are as follows:
-Within the scope of the first paragraph of the Article 17 of the Law No. 5510, to benefit from an incentive or for a retrospective incentive change, related to 2018 / April and beyond;
With regards to the employers who have not submitted their original / additional / canceled monthly premiums and service declarations for the related months as of the publication date of this general letter although they have applied to SSI within the legal period of six months; the premium and service documents must be uploaded to the system by 31/12/2020 at the latest (including this date).
-Within the scope of the second paragraph of the Article 17 of the Law No. 5510, to benefit from an incentive or for a retrospective incentive change, related to 2018 / March and beyond;
