Pay attention to those who are in debt! The countdown has begun
While the restructuring of debts to the public, especially tax and SSI premium debts, will enter the last week, a total of 3.9 million people will be directly restructured in a week.
It is the first time that General Health Insurance (GHI) borrowers are automatically included in the scope of restructuring. Authorities state that there are several reasons for this situation.
Stating that some citizens are not even aware of GSS debt, the officials said, “Almost 3.9- 4 million people are within this scope. As GSS borrowers are a large group, such a way is followed to prevent possible road accidents and delays. People will be able to see whether they have entered the configuration via e-government or banks. From this point on, they will be able to directly participate in the configuration by paying. He gave the information that "there is no automatic participation in the debts of Bağ-Kur and SSK".
Citizens with GSS debt will be deemed to have benefited from Law No. 7256, even if they have not applied for restructuring.
TEST SHOULD BE PERFORMED BY MARCH 31
GSS members who want to benefit from the configuration will first fulfill this obligation if they have never had an income test. These people must have the income test until March 31, 2021. If, as a result of the income test, it is determined that the income of the person is lower than one third of the gross minimum wage, the state covers the premiums. In this context, if the per capita income in the household is below one thousand 192 liras, the premiums will start to be paid, and the amount of debt issued up to that day will be deleted. If the person's GSS debt is confirmed, payment will be required by April 30. If the premium debt is paid completely by this date, the penalties and increases will be deleted.
Under normal conditions, those with GSS premium debt cannot benefit from health services through the Social Security Institution (SGK). However, the transition period, which was brought to prevent citizens from being victims, has been extended by temporary regulations in recent years and those who have debts are given the right to benefit from health services. This period ended on December 31, 2020. With the President's decision published the previous day, the temporary arrangement was extended again until the end of the year. The authorities stated that the reason for the extension decision was taken towards the end of January, not at the beginning of the year, was the restructuring, and said, “Thus, the people who want to apply were given the opportunity. Most of the applications have also been received, ”he said.
