    Social Security Organization (SSO) is a social insurer organization in Iran which provides coverage of wage-earners and salaried workers as well as voluntary coverage of self-employed persons. In 1975, the Social Security Law was approved and the SSO was established.

    Iran did not legislate in favor of a universal social protection, but in 1996, the Center of the Statistics of Iran estimated that more than 73% of the Iranian population was covered by social security. Membership in the social security system is compulsory for all employees.

    SSO is a nongovernmental organization and it is solely financed by contributions (with participation of insured (7%), employer (20–23%) and government (3%)). Social protection is extended to the self-employed workers, who voluntarily contribute between 12% and 18% of income depending on the protection sought. SSO provides the following services:

  • Retirement, disability and death;
  • Unemployment;
  • Old-age;
  • Helplessness, loss of caretaker and social vulnerabilities;
  • Accidents and injuries;
  • Physical, mental and psychic disability;
  • Health care and medical insurance;
  • Protecting mothers especially during the maternity period and child-rearing;
  • Protecting orphan children and unprotected women;
  • Planning particular insurance system for widows, old women and self-dependent women;
  • Poverty and inequity alleviation;
  • Assistance and rescue.
  • Civil servants, the regular military, law enforcement agencies, and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Iran’s second major military organization, have their own pension systems.
