A new function of social security inquiry was launched on the popular Alipay payment app in Beijing recently.
This convenient inquiry way is expected to facilitate 18 million insured people in Beijing, who will not need to queue up at windows to inquire about their social security information about insurance payment, annual outpatient expenses in medical insurance coverage, designated hospitals, etc.
For inquiry, Alipay payment app users only need to open the app, click “City Service”, select social security inquiry, and then follow prompts to operate step by step.
