Summary
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has undergone a huge transformation following the discovery of oil in the 1950s, going from a poor region to a contemporary state with a high standard of living. The country, however, only provides social security benefits to UAE nationals. The country does not have a social security system comparable to those that expatriates from other countries have access to. Expatriate employees and employers of an expatriate are not required to make contributions to any social security scheme. The country’s social security system is governed by the Pension and Social Security Federal Law. The General Pension and Social Security Authority (GPSSA) and Abu Dhabi Retirement Pensions and Benefits Fund (ADRPBF) are both responsible for social insurance and pension benefits in the UAE. Individuals can also voluntarily participate in private benefit plans.
