Qatar: Social Insurance Law Comes into Force

Gulf Times, 3 January 2023: The Director of Customer Management at Qatar’s General Retirement and Social Insurance Authority (GRSIA) has confirmed that Social Insurance Law No.1/2022 will be implemented on 3 January 2023.

The new law aims to expand the scope of insurance coverage to include all citizens working in the private sector, to add the housing allowance to the salary of subscription calculation, and to allow civilian pensioners to combine their pension and job salary in case they join the private sector.

The Director said GRSIA is fully prepared to implement the provisions of the law, meaning all employers subject to its provisions can update or register their information and receive inquiries or requests of the insured regarding the law electronically through the digital services portal of the employers on the GRSIA’s website.
