Documentation requirements for male employee’s entitlement to paternity insurance benefits are about to take effect

Quỳnh Như

Vietnam Social Security has issued the Decision No. 166/QD-BHXH on procedures for dealing with social insurance benefits and payment of SI and UI benefits.

The Decision prescribes that documentation requirements for male employees or spouses of female surrogate employees (SI contribution payees) who have to take leave during their spouses' childbirth will comprise: 

(1) List No. 01B-HSB compiled by the employer (attached to this Decision);

(2) Duplicate copy of the notice of birth or the birth certificate or the extract of the birth certificate of the child. 

In case the notice of birth shows a surgical birth or the delivery of a baby under 32 weeks of age, documents proving such surgical birth or delivery issued by healthcare institutions must be required. 

In case babies die after birth and notices of birth have not yet been issued, duplicate copies or summaries of medical records or hospital discharge papers of natural mothers or female surrogate employees must confirm such death.  

The Decision No. 166/QD-BHXH will enter into force from May 1, 2019.
