The main reason is due to epidemics, employees quit their jobs, lost their jobs, as of this time full 12 months (of which, in some localities, the number of people applying for one-time social insurance benefits increased highly due to the impact of the Covid-19 epidemic such as Khanh Hoa, Da Nang, Quang Nam …).
Regarding the salary paid for social insurance, earlier the Vietnam Social Insurance report showed that many businesses still mainly build scales and payrolls to pay social insurance with the lowest level.
Statistics of Vietnam Social Insurance also show that the majority of businesses have registered to pay social insurance for their employees according to the salary level without other additional payments. Although the regulation from January 1, 2018, the monthly salary paid for social insurance includes the salary level and other additional amounts. According to the Vietnam Social Security, one of the reasons for the above situation is that it is not clear which additional allowances must be calculated for payment of social insurance.
