Hi everybody! Happy New Year!
Have a slight problem, well hope not anyway.
Last year I became an AE as an English Teacher and have paid one lot of cotisations etc. so far.
I received a Notice of Situation from the RSI in June last year, stating:
"Nous avons bien enregistre votre demand d'immatriculation. Vous etes redevable de votre cotisation d'assurance maladie obligatoire. Vous etes affilie au regime social des independants a compter du 19.04.12 en application des nouvelles dispositions concernant les createurs, la date de paiement de votre premiere cotisation est reportee au 1er jour du 4em mois qui suit votre decision d'affiliation."
Which I believe means that they have recorded my registration and I am liable for my health insurance contributions. I am affiliated to the RSI, effective from 19th April and the date of my first payment is ......
Stating my cotisations for the period 2012 was €0.
Today, I contacted the RSI who stated that I was not covered regarding the health insurance as they viewed it as secondary activity. Which it is not. I do receive a pension from the UK, which is from my previous employment. I am too young to have an old age pension!
Is this right? How can they class it as a secondary activity? Am I missing something.
The issue for me is the health side as my S1 has run out, oops!
