Due to the doubts that arose about the application of the sum of retirement contributions for housewives for each of their children, the National Social Security Administration (ANSeS) issued a series of complementary and clarifying provisions for the purpose of a better understanding for their compliance and application of the norm.
Through the Resolution 154/2021, published this Thursday in the Official Gazette with the signature of the head of the ANSeS, Fernanda Raverta, established the requirements and procedures that women must comply with in order to add one to three years of computable services for their retirement for each child , as provided by Decree 475/21 made official on July 19.

Within the clarifications provided by the agency in the Resolution published this Thursday, it was specified that “in order to compute the years of service, each son and / or daughter whose birth and disability, if applicable, will be taken into account. is registered in the ANSeS bases and linked to the person requesting the benefit, by virtue of the documentation that the Agency has for such purposes “.
The agency also clarified that “in the event that such information does not arise from the records in the ANSeS, the applicant must present the pertinent documentary evidence for the accreditation of the son and / or daughter.”

Regarding the computation of services for the Universal Child Allowance (AUH), the administration established that “the person who has accessed the AUH for Social Protection shall be understood as the woman and / or pregnant person who has been liquidated and / or paid the aforementioned Assignment, by the boy or girl for whom the additional year or years of services have been computed, regardless of the status of payment of the liquidation; with the exception of those periods of liquidation of the Universal Assignment by Child for Social Protection who have been suspended “.
It was clarified in the regulations that this calculation “will not have any effect as an increase or bonus of retirement assets “and it was specified that” it will be considered with the extremes of the general regime, only for the purpose of reaching the minimum number of years of services required to obtain the retirement benefit. “
Regarding the accreditation of the period of maternity leave and / or leave of absence, the ANSeS established that “it will consider the information that arises unequivocally from the Sworn Declarations sent by the employers that are displayed in the SIPA computer system administered by this Organization.”
But in the event that such information is not found on that platform, “the period of maternity leave or leave of absence recorded in the Service Certification will be considered valid,” provided that the date of birth of the woman’s son or daughter and / or a pregnant person would have occurred within the period “immediately prior to maternity leave or during the period of maternity leave.”
However, it was pointed out in the regulations that the license periods “may only be computed as long as the previous services worked for the same employer that granted them are proven and accredited by the ANSeS “.
