Summary
The Zambian social security system is based on the social insurance model and provides protection against income loss due to retirement, disability and death. All employed individuals in the formal sector are required to contribute to statutory pension scheme. Individuals not covered by the scheme can contribute voluntarily. The combined asset size of the statutory pension scheme was estimated to be ZMW6.0 billion (US$1.0 billion) in 2012, while the voluntary pension’s combined asset-size was ZMW3.2 billion (US$549.0 million). However, the insurance industry’s growth was recently affected by bottlenecks such as its legal framework, fiscal regime and investment climate, which are expected to be addressed by the Pensions and Insurance Authority in 2015.
