With the popularization of digitalization and mobile payment, a kind of “virtual social security card” has been put in use. The electronic social security card issued by National Social Security Card Service Platform can be connected with more social services, so that the card holders can enjoy the relevant convenient online services via their mobile phones.
In Henan, the electronic social security card can be applied on WeChat, Alipay and “Henan Social Security” App. In future, Henan Provincial Department of Human Resources and Social Security will vigorously promote the electronic social security card. In 2019, the number of electronic card holders is expected to be no less than 10 percent of physical card holders; in 2020, the number of electronic card holders is expected to be no less than 25 percent of physical card holders; and in 2021, “One Card for All” service management mode will be formed with both physical and electronic cards being used concurrently.
