How does the collated contribution work?
Basically, the interim contribution works as follows: you, as an INSS insured, contribute to the public body, right? Due to some circumstance that is within the legal terms for guaranteeing the benefits of the INSS, you request the right to benefit from sickness benefit from the public body.
