Summary

Kenya’s social security system is considered important for the security of workers, their families, and the community. The Kenyan social security system is divided into three pillars - a public scheme, occupational schemes, and individual schemes. The Kenyan social security system provides compulsory benefits such as old-age, disability, sickness, death, maternity, work injury, unemployment, and medical care, for different groups of individuals such as children, employed, unemployed, retired, or elderly individuals.
