Should self-employed workers on medical leave continue to make their contributions?

Yes.

The contribution obligation continues throughout a temporary disability situation, even in cases of risks during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Self-employed workers are no exception to this rule. Therefore, you must be current on the payment of your Social Security contributions and continue paying during such situations in order to have a right to the temporary disability economic benefit.

The mutual insurance company must suspend temporary disability economic benefits until the worker is current on any pending payments.
