Regional Directorate for Social Security

Welcome to the page of the
Regional Directorate for Social Security

Welcome to the page of the Regional Directorate Social Security.
Our activity is developed in the area of social policies, thus meeting the goals defined by the Regional Government through the Regional Secretariat for Social Affairs.

We coordinate the action of the regional institutions of social security – Institute for Social Work, Social Security Management Institute and the Social Security Financial Management Centre.  It is through a joint work with these entities that we intend to meet the specific needs of each citizen in every aspect of his life.

We manage the contributions of our taxpayers and we ensure the payment of benefits to our beneficiaries, in the good and bad moments of their lives – through family benefits and the protection in maternity, unemployment, sickness, disability and old age, among others.  

We provide responses within the community that support the citizen from the first to the last day of his life. 

Therefore, we have established cooperation agreements with Private Social Solidarity Institutions and with the “Santas Casas da Misericórdia,” financing the operation of infrastructures that provide a response to children and youngsters at serious risk of exclusion, to groups with special needs and to the elderly. 

We have established partnerships to create projects, under social and local development, with groups at risk, in social exclusion.

We are here for you.
Work with us.

In this space feel free to express your opinions, make your suggestions and assess our work.
By sharing reflections, combining efforts around common interests we will go further in the improvement of social responses for each citizen and for all the community.

Be an active citizen, a responsible taxpayer so that we may better provide all the answers that you might need.
