National Social Security System and Benefits. As Indonesian citizens, one of our rights is to get social security. The new system called the Social Security Administration (BPJS) is a form of the State’s responsibility to provide full social protection to the Indonesian people.
Implementation of SJSN by BPJS and the Benefits Provided
National Social Security System and Benefits. The formation of the BPJS was not for commercial purposes or profit. The two BPJS institutions provide benefits to the Indonesian people in the form of:
Social Security for Health
Before the existence of the BPJS, the Indonesian people had difficulty getting medical expenses assistance. They must first take care of certificates and so on. After the emergence of BPJS Kesehatan (replacing Askes) in 2014, access to treatment has become easier.
To get health insurance from BPJS Kesehatan, every Indonesian citizen must first register as a participant. The benefits provided are graded according to the class. The community can choose benefits according to their ability to pay contributions.
Social Security for Employment
Apart from health benefits, the Social Security Administration also provides benefits for workers in Indonesia.
The death security program (JKM) provides risk relief for the heirs for the death of BPJS Ketenagakerjaan participants. This social security is in the form of compensation. The JKM program can be claimed not based on work accidents. Benefits that can be obtained in addition to death benefits are funeral expenses and periodic compensation for 24 months.
Work accident insurance (JKK) can be used by workers in the formal sector. The JKK payment at BPJS Ketenagakerjaan is fully borne by the company. The guarantee provided can be in the form of compensation or rehabilitation. Occupational risks include death or disability, both physical and mental.
Old Age Social Security
Old-age security (JHT) is a protection benefit that results from a cut in working income at a non-productive age. Usually, JHT takes the form of certainty of receiving income to the person concerned after reaching the age of 55 years. For example, a company will provide old-age insurance after its employees have worked for more than 10 years, and so on.
Construction Services Guarantee
For freelancers, part-time workers, or part-time workers in the construction service sector handled by contractors in private projects, APBD projects, international fund projects, or APBN projects, they will get social security.
