The Law for Labor Justice, published yesterday in the Official Gazette, determines that the Board of the IESS has a term of 60 days to set the contribution that housewives will have to pay to Social Security.
Socioeconomic information of each family will be used by the IESS through a cadastre, although Fausto Cayambe, a member of the Commission on the Rights of Workers, indicated that the entity has the information of 450,000 beneficiaries of the Human Development Grant (BDH for its Spanish acronym).
Thus, housewives will have access to a retirement pension after 20 years of contributions. It is noteworthy that health coverage is not included in this reform to the labor law. Thus, housewives will pay an average of $ 2 to $ 46.90 monthly. The state will make a contribution of $ 9.70 to $ 15.80, not being the case of upper class housewives.
