Employee Benefits in Spain, 2020 Update

The Spanish social security system covers the country’s entire population, including foreigners who work in the country. It also protects those of Spanish origin, as well as their dependents who reside in foreign countries. The main objective of this system is to formulate a single and integrated model of social protection, in order to guarantee adequate social assistance and a source of funds for various benefits, with contributions from insured individuals, employers, and the state. However, the recent sovereign debt crisis in Europe has adversely impacted the Spanish social security system. The recession in property dealings affected Spain’s property and housing sector, and thus raised the level of unemployment. As a result of this, the payment of unemployment benefits has increased, rising government expenditure, and forcing the state to impose high taxes and charge for all free medical and healthcare services. Furthermore, the country’s private employee benefits sector was also adversely affected by the crisis
