Mr. Anusorn Kraiwatnussorn, Vice Minister of Labour, said when launching the “debt-free road” project and opening the award-presenting ceremony that Mr. Phadermchai Sasomsub, Minister of Labour, announced 2012 as the clearing debt year for Office of Social Security and provided a regular debt management guideline to the office. To realize the goal, the ministry launched the project to give operators incentives to pay all contribution to the Social Security Fund. The projects also helped create awareness among operators about the importance of paying contribution and the bad effects of the failure to do so.
 
In the first phase of the project starting September 2012, a total of 5,670 workplaces joined the project with 1,163 of them owing 6.15 million baht unpaid contributions to the Social Security Fund. When the project ended in December 2012, no workplace owed an unpaid contribution to the fund.
 
On January 28, 2013, Ministry of Labour held the ceremony to present awards to 92 selected workplaces for paying all contribution to the fund. Bangkok’s Office of Social Security Area 1-12 and 23 provincial offices of security selected the workplaces.
 
Of them, 46 joined the “debt-free road” project while the rest were workplaces that paid all contribution to the fund but did not join the project. All the workplaces had been members of the fund since 2000, which had submitted their contribution information through the electronic system and paid their contribution to fund through the Bangkok’s Office of Social Security Area 1-12 and 23 provincial offices of security selected the workplaces.
 
Mr. Anusorn said the project aimed to promote good relations with employers and provide them incentives to comply with social security law. The award recognizes the responsibility of workplaces in paying all contribution to the fund in due time and goodness of employers.
