After the employer has communicated the worker’s hiring, he is required to pay welfare contributions as follows:

  • 1 – 10 April: work performed from 1 January to 31 March
  • 1 – 10 July: work performed from 1 April to 30 June
  • 1 – 10 October: work performed from 1 July to 30 September
  • 1 – 10 January: work performed from 1 October to 31 December

Using the PIN code, it is possible to use one of the following methods of payment:

1. via credit card: online payment

  • via website www.inps.it in the section Servizi on line > Portale dei pagamenti (Online Services > Payment portal)
  • or by phoning the Contact Center toll-free number 803.164

2. via MAV (payment against notice): a payment slip downloadable from the Internet that can be paid at so-called “Reti amiche”:

  • tobacconists displaying the logo “Servizi INPS”
  • Unicredit Spa bank branches
  • authorised post offices

For Diplomatic Officers who don’t have a Health Insurance Card

It is not possible to request the PIN, thus the contributions must be calculated in a different way (only tax code (C.F.) and employment relationship code are needed):

  • Go to: servizi online> elenco tutti i servizi > portale dei pagamenti > lavoratori domestici > entra nel servizio (online services> all services > domestic workers > enter)
  • Enter: Tax code and employment relationship code
  • Continue: click on ok for payment
  • Finally choose whether to pay online with credit card or via MAV, which you can download and pay via the ‘reti amiche’ network.
