Clause 2, Article 8 of Decree 115/2015/ND-CP stipulating how to calculate one-time social insurance based on the number of years of paying the social insurance premium, each year is calculated by:

  • 1.5 months the average monthly salary on which social insurance premiums are based for the years of payment before 2014;

Benefit level = (1.5 x average monthly salary on which social insurance premiums are based x Time of payment of social insurance premium before 2014) + (2 x average monthly salary on which social insurance premiums are based x Time of paying social insurance premiums after 2014)

Note:
