FAQ: Frequently asked questions and answers.


When changing or creating an activity linked to a social security number or CBE number, the R.S.Z. establish a main activity and pass it on to the RJV annual holiday sector. With this information he will realize an affiliation to one of the 10 holiday funds. In case of doubt, the system will conduct an investigation to determine the correctness of the affiliation. An affiliation is therefore determined according to the employer's RSZ declaration and Congemetal cannot or may not exercise any influence on it. If you are affiliated to Congemetal (the affiliation number is the Social Security number, the 9 digits without the activity), the system will send all declarations and attestations from these workers, obtained from the Social Security declaration, to Congemetal so that Congemetal can perform the calculation. All changes to a declaration can be part of the recalculation of the holiday pay and/or the holiday days acquired.

How is the holiday allowance funded? The holiday pay of the workers is financed by Employer's contributions to the National Social Security Office on the gross salary of the worker at 108%.
Since 1 January 2018, these Employers contributions amount to 15.84%, split into a quarterly contribution of 5.57% and an annual contribution for April of 10.27%.
