Kenyan Workers’ Future Hangs on Chief Justice’s Decision on NSSF Increase


Kenyan workers’ future concerning the proposed National Social Security Fund (NSSF) increase now depends on Chief Justice Martha Koome’s decision.

The case was sent to the CJ by the Supreme Court Registrar to select a panel to hear and decide the matter.

The NSSF Act proposes to raise monthly contributions from Ksh200 to Ksh2,160.

On February 5, the Court of Appeal allowed the NSSF to implement the increase, but the County Pensioners Association (CPA) contested it in the Supreme Court due to potential bankruptcy in the pensions industry.

The CPA pleaded with the court to prevent the NSSF Board of Trustees, the Retirement Benefits Authority, and the Federation of Kenya Employers (FKE) from implementing the changes.
