Moroccans still top social security affiliates

Some 286,726 Moroccans were affiliated to social security in Spain at the end of last September, i.e. the foreign workers from outside the community who contribute the most.

According to statistics from the Spanish Ministry of Labour, Migration and Social Security, published Thursday, Moroccans remain at the top of the ranking, followed by Colombians (124,609) and Venezuelans (120,344).

The total number of foreigners affiliated with Spanish social security reached 2,456,019 people in the first nine months of 2022, down by 18,528 active people compared to August.

Of all the foreign workers contributing to Spanish social security, some 1,613,983 people come from non-EU countries and 842,036 come from European Union countries.

Overall, foreign workers accounted for 12.1% of the total number of people registered with Social Security in September in seasonally adjusted values.

According to the National Institute of Statistics (INE), some 879,943 Moroccans were legally established in Spain until January 1, 2022, up 0.8% (+7,184 people) compared to January 1, 2021.

Moroccans have thus maintained their position as the first foreign community legally settled in the Iberian country, representing 16% of foreigners established in Spain.
