Saudi Ministry of Human Resources has begun implementing the designed social security system to provide stability and support to the most vulnerable and deserving families, as well as to ensure that each beneficiary’s fundamental needs are met.
The created social security system was built following legislation to achieve social protection objectives such as monetary assistance, rehabilitation, and training services.
It also seeks to employ people, guarantee that Zakat monies reach their intended recipients, and increase the skills of individuals who are eligible to improve their social and economic well-being.
The created system focuses on the most vulnerable individuals and families, providing them with material assistance and empowering those who are eligible to better their living conditions.
The Ministry has implemented the required upgrades and alterations to the social security platform to comply with the mechanism of the created social security system, which will begin accepting applications on Saturday, November 20, 2021.
The ministry stated that it will begin evaluating new applicants’ eligibility in December of this year and that the first pension will be deposited in January of the next year.
