There are five types of social insurance in total:a) pension;b) medical insurance;c) work injury insurance;d) unemployment insurance; ande) maternity insurance.In the remaining part of this post we are going to share with readers individual requirements which are of most concern.a ;b ;c ;d ;e
1. PensionAccording to related regulations, the minimum contribution time for employees to receive a pension is 15 years, which means, if any employee has reached the statutory retirement age and had made pension contributions previously for 15 years cumulatively, the employee is eligible to receive a corresponding pension on a monthly basis upon retirement.1.: 1515,
2. Medical insuranceTere is no unified standard for the minimum contribution time for medical insurance. As a matter of fact, the minimum contribution time for men and women are different in some places. So, it depends on the local policy where the employees are retiring to determine whether they can enjoy medical insurance when they are going to retire, or how to meet the minimum contribution standard.2.
