The Economy News - Baghdad
The Retirement and Social Security Department of the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs launched, on Wednesday, an electronic platform for the contributions program to facilitate entrepreneurs registering their workers in social security, while noting that 500,000 workers will be covered by social security at the end of this year.
"This platform was taken in order to confront the Corona virus and to reduce corruption cases that occur as a result of the reviews and momentum," Department Director General Raed Jabbar Bahiz said in a statement reported by the official news agency "Waa" and viewed by "Al-Iqtisad News".
He added, "This program facilitates the process of paying citizens' contributions during an electronic linking process with the inspection department without the need to review the department," noting that "according to the initiative launched by the Minister of Labor and Social Affairs, 500,000 workers will be covered by social security at the end of 2020."
He stressed, "Inspection campaigns were launched two weeks ago in the governorates of Basra and Kirkuk and will include all governorates, and that the results of the campaign were to include 6000 new workers in the governorate of Kirkuk with social security."
In turn, the assistant director of the Retirement and Social Security Department, Kholoud Hiran Al-Jabri, announced, "There are three main goals behind the online platform," noting that "the first goals of the platform are to facilitate the subscriptions and payments process via electronic companies to prevent bribery and the momentum of auditors."
She added, "It is possible during the platform to know the number of workers registered officially with the Department of Retirement and Social Security, and the number of foreign workers, which helps in determining whether the number of foreign workers exceeds the required number of 50% for each company."
Al-Jabri added, “The third goal of the platform is to know the fund’s revenues and work to maximize them, because the department operates by self-financing, and it has pension obligations and workers’ bonuses at the end of service for those who do not deserve a pension, while workers who deserve the pension do not receive the end-of-service reward. ”
