As a concrete outcome of the workshop, participants will prepare a work plan outlining actions and steps for consideration upon their return to their institution.
ISSA Guidelines on Contribution Collection and Compliance
These processes constitute core function within social security systems. They play a key role in attaining the financial sustainability of the overall system as well as in the extension of social coverage. The timely and full payment of contributions by and on behalf of insured persons is necessary if they are to achieve the benefits to which they are legally entitled. Therefore, compliance and a high collection rate must be key objectives for social security institutions administering contributory schemes. Where compliance gaps are identified, social security institutions can take actions to ensure that eligible people and their employers contribute to the system. Where there are specific administrative or transaction cost barriers to contribution collection, social security institutions can innovate and consider measures to overcome these barriers. As contribution collection and compliance often involve multiple institutions, process integration becomes a key issue to be addressed.
