There are less than three weeks left to submit corrections to settlement documents for the years 1999 – 2021. The deadline is January 1, 2024.
It is advisable to verify the settlement documents submitted to ZUS for the periods from January 1999 to December 2021 as soon as possible. Correcting errors and submitting corrected declarations and reports to the Institution will only be possible until January 1, 2024. However, rectifying irregularities in settlement documents (ZUS DRA, ZUS RCA, ZUS RSA) for the periods from January 2022 can be done within 5 years from the deadline for paying contributions for a given calendar month – reminds Krystyna Michałek, the regional spokesperson for ZUS in the Kuyavian-Pomeranian Voivodeship.
After these deadlines, corrections or initial settlement documents can only be prepared by ZUS based solely on a legally binding decision or court judgment. However, if 5 years have passed since the day on which the deadline for paying contributions included in a given declaration and report expired, the information included in the settlement documents will be recorded only on the insured party’s accounts and will not affect the settlement status with the contribution payer. That is why we encourage contribution payers to analyze settlement documents for the years 1999 – 2021, as there is not much time left to potentially correct them – adds the spokesperson.
Every contribution payer who has doubts and will need help in verifying settlements and explaining the rules for correcting settlement documents can schedule an e-visit, contact us by phone at +48 22 560 16 00, or visit any ZUS branch. If entrepreneurs submit documents through the Płatnik or e-Płatnik program, they can also request access to KEDU files with data for periods earlier than those in their database – adds the spokesperson.
