In a previous post, we have explained in detail the Benefits of GOSI to Expatriate and Saudi Employees. Every employee working in Saudi Arabia is registered with GOSI. Your employer has the responsibility to pay your contribution if you are an expatriate.
I think every employee working in Saudi Arabia must know about the benefits and tell his family members about them. In the case of death or permanent disability related to occupational hazards, GOSI pays SR 330,000/- as cash compensation.
You or your family cannot take it if you don’t let them know about it. To get this benefit, it is very important to register yourself with GOSI through their online portal and get a print out of GOSI certificate. I have explained the procedure to register with GOSI Online Portal below.
Open the website of GOSI and register yourself as GOSI Contributor. If you don’t know about the website, you can open it through this link http://goo.gl/YJ6j8U
You will have to enter your Contributor ID number of GOSI. If you don’t know this number, you can contract HR of your company to get this number. If they are not helping you out, you can call at the toll-free number of GOSI at 8001243344 and get this number on phone call by telling them about your Iqama number.
You will also have to enter your Iqama number, email address and phone number and click on “OK”. You will be immediately registered with the GOSI and receive an SMS from them.
The SMS you have received contains the password of your GOSI account. Now you can log in to your account by entering your Iqama number and password given in the SMS. Now you can log in to your account by entering your Iqama number and password given in the SMS.
The following screen will appear on your computer screen once you have submitted the required information and you will have to click on the link of “General Certificate”.
A new screen will open containing details of your social insurance number, mobile number, and email ID. There will be a drop-down list with the tab of “Certificate Type” and you will have to select “Certificate of Contributor months and wages INT” and click on “Generate”
Now keep the document in some safe place at your home. It is better to keep it with your other important documents like Life Insurance policy or educational degrees. Your family might need it in case of emergency
