Is Esnaf still working with SGK?
« on: January 03, 2016, 22:00:37 PM »
On January 1 TodaysZaman has an article saying that 21 hospitals in Turkey have had their SGK contracts cancelled.  Does anyone know if Esnaf still honors SGK?

As far as I'm aware, SGK premiums are linked to the minimum wage and as this was increased by around 30% at the turn of the year the SGK premiums rose by a similar amount.  Unless there is another major increase in the minimum wage, the June 2016 increase should be in the region of 4%.

this is true john f but it is some hike for quite a few ex pats living here who don't have any source of income. as far as I am aware this applies to turks as well especially to those hiring bar staff etc for the coming season as they will have to foot the bill. not very pleasant for up and coming tourism if any at all.

If someone doesn't have any source of income how can they afford SGK in the first place?

Currently works out at £88pm for a couple, not exactly a fortune for pretty comprehensive health insurance.

by my calculations that works out at over £1000 per year. that is some health insurance imo.

As a point of order, that makes it £500 (per person).

I'd call that very reasonable?

395tl per person. So £1000 each. Still reasonable for peace of mind.

Sounds good but it doesn't cover problems, you have before you joined,
also a lot of people don't like the State Hospital so they have to pay on top
of their SGk at  the Esnaf exc. but you takes your choice,
