This study shows through a simple and didactic language, the conditions for an individual to be afliated to Social Security as a facultative or
low-income facultative member. This innovation enlarges the social security coverage, providing the opportunity to access the list of benets.
Thus, exposing the normative provisions, this analysis demonstrates the basic requirements to be included in this category, as well as the
legal effects of this choice. The content of this study will help afliated people to know more about their rights, and permit the development of
professionals that work and study the social security law.
Keywords: Social Security. Universality of coverage. Facultative afliates. Low-income facultative afliates.
