Andorra - Social Security
Regrettably this service is not available to "passive" residents (non-employed). New residents must have Private Medical Insurance such as PPP or BUPA.
To qualify to join C.A.S.S. (caixa Andorran de Seguretat Social) applicants must be under the age of 60 and either an Andorran citizen or "resident" in Andorra under work contract, or children of residents, in order to join the C.A.S.S. scheme. It is obligatory for all workers under contract to join the C.A.S.S.
After application there is a 3 month period before one can use the system. Dependents can be registered after the 3 month period but there is then a 40 day period before they can use the system.
Children are counted as dependents up to the age of 18. For those children who are still students after the age of 18 a photocopy of a certificate of attendance issued by the education centre must be submitted to the C.A.S.S. at the start of each scholastic year. This allows the student continued cover under the contributing parent up to the age of 25.
Dependents are automatically registered for medical cover under this scheme but for pension rights they must apply separately. The minimum contribution is 214.50 Euros per month.
