NSSF probably won’t make mandatory salary deductions

On Thursday, September 22, the Employment and Labour Relations Court ruled that the National Social Security Fund’s (NSSF) monopoly was over after finding that parts of the NSSF’s regulations violated the country’s constitution.

Workers’ rights were infringed by the social security fund, thus the court stopped it from taking automatic withdrawals from their salaries.

The court emphasized that employees should be free to choose their own pension plan without having to make mandatory payments into the NSSF fund.

Every month, employees in Kenya have Ksh200 taken out of their paychecks and invested by the National Social Security Fund (NSSF).
