Abstract

Notification the Occupational Accidents to the Social Security Institution

In the Social Security and General Health Insurance Law No. 5510, is regulated the benefits provided by the Social Security Institution to the insured person in case of a work accident or to the remaining beneficiaries if the insured died. However, in order for the benefits provided by the Social Security Institution to be used by the insured or the beneficiaries in case of death of the insured, the Social Security Institution must be aware of the work accident. In addition, the incident must be accepted as a work accident by the Institution. An arrangement has been made in the 13th article of the Law No. 5510, titled "definition, notification and investigation of work accident" on the notification of work accident. According to the law, the employer must immediately report the accident to the authorized law enforcement officers in that place. It has to notify the Institution within three working days after the accident at the latest. (SSGSSK. m. 13/2, a). Insurance holders within the scope of Law No. 5510 “4/1, b” must notify the Institution of work accident within three working days after the day when their illness does not prevent reporting, provided that it does not exceed one month. (SSGSSK. m. 13/2, b). In the Law No. 5510, it is also specified how the notification will be made; It has been stated that it is obligatory to notify the Institution directly or by registered mail with the "declaration of work accident and occupational disease". (SSGSSK. m. 13/2). The form and content of the work accident and occupational disease declaration, the method of submission and the procedures and principles regarding the implementation of this article are regulated in the Social Insurance Transactions Regulation issued by the Institution. (SSGSSK. m. 13/4).
