Pajemploi is an essential administrative tool when you are a childminder. Registration, monthly declarations, end of the contract, and many aspects of the asset’s professional life are supervised through this URSSAF organization.
However, all these administrative procedures are done on an online platform, which can make it difficult to use at first. In addition, Pajemploi now offers an additional service, Pajemploi +, which still needs to be discovered by many parents and childminders.
What is the Urssaf Pajemploi service?
Pajemploi is a service offered by the URSSAF which aims to simplify the administrative procedures for childcare at home and the employment of an approved childminder.
Indeed, when a parent chooses to have their child looked after by a childminder, they become their employer, the asset, becoming their employee. It is then necessary to formalize the custody of the child by a contract and to supervise the relations between the two parties: declare the salary of the childminder, publish pay slips, etc.
Aimed at both parents and childminders, Pajemploi is used throughout the working relationship, from the start of the childcare contract, during monthly declarations, and at the end of the employment contract.
In addition, Pajemploi is the guarantor of the collective agreement for childminders, which governs relations between childminders and parent employers and ensures that the remuneration conditions comply with the standards in force.
What is the role of Pajemploi?
The URSSAF Pajemploi service performs a distinct role depending on whether you are a parent, an employer, or an employed childminder. It is aimed at assets and the parents of children in foster care.
The role of Pajemploi for the childminder
The childminder does not have to take any special steps on Pajemploi because the employer makes declarations of the start of the support contract, remuneration, or termination.
However, Pajemploi provides the asset with its pay slips, monthly salary statements, and tax certificate based on the information transmitted by the employer. All these documents are accessible online in the employee area.
The role of Pajemploi for parents
Pajemploi allows parents to make their declarations throughout the life of their contract with the asset.
Indeed, once the childcare contract has been established with their childminder, the parent must declare the hours worked every month (between the 25th of the current month and the first five days of the following month). These hours must be entered online on Pajemploi and will be used to automatically produce the childminder’s pay slip.
Likewise, the parent employer must carry out the end-of-contract procedures directly on Pajemploi, which will help them calculate any account balance based on the previous declarations provided.
Registration on Pajemploi: how to do it?
Whether you are a parent, employer, or childminder, registration on Pajemploi uses a letter sent by Pajemploi, which contains an identifier and a temporary password (also called Pajemploi number).
To obtain this number, the parent employer must first request a “Free Choice of Childcare Mode” (CMG) allowance from the Caisse d’Allocations Familiales (CAF) or the Mutualité Sociale Agricole ( MSA). This CAF allowance financially supports parents who have opted for care with a childminder.
Once the process has been completed, It directly creates the parent’s employer space, on which they can declare their childminder, even if the parent cannot benefit from the CMG.
After this first declaration, the asset will, in turn, receive a letter indicating their username and temporary password, which will allow them to create their Pajemploi account and have access to their personal space. In the event of a lost Pajemploi identifier, you must make a recovery request via email or contact the platform.
Pajemploi déclaration: a process to be carried out every month
It is essential for parents, as for the asset, to make a declaration each month. This declaration regulates the childminder’s remuneration and calculates the social security contributions to be paid.
The declaration from the parents’ side
It is up to the parent employer to make the asset salary declaration every month. This statement is made between the 25th day of the current month and the 5th day of the next.
To do this, the parent must register directly online in their space:
- the number of hours worked by the assistant,
- the period, in weeks, during which he worked,
- the number of days worked,
- the date of payment of salary,
- overtime, if applicable,
- the number of paid holidays from Assmat,
- any allowances for the maternal assistant: mileage, maintenance, meals, etc.
Once the declaration has been made, Pajemploi automatically calculates the social contributions of the asset and can cover them if the employer benefits from the help of the Choice of Childcare Mode. Otherwise, these contributions will be deducted from the account of the parent employer.
Then, Pajemploi automatically publishes the asset’s pay slip and makes it available online on the Pajemploi accounts of the employer and the asset. However, if the parent declares the salary of the maternal assistant online on the Pajemploi website, the salary payment is made directly from the employer to the assistant.
For example, the Dupont family employs a childminder for their child. Therefore, she will first have to make her declaration for October 2022 between October 25 and November 5. Then, Dupont will pay the salary of the asset by a check given directly to it on October 31.
The declaration for asset
The childminder needs a declaration to make at the end of the month. She must, however, collect her pay slip in her Pajemploi employee space.
However, it is recommended to check the calculations made by the parent employer to avoid any error in the salary payment or the income tax contributions.
