TYPES OF MEMBERSHIP
Membership to ECASSA is not confined to the EAC member countries. The Association’s Constitution provides for membership from this sub-region as comprising but not limited to the EAC countries, Sudan, Democratic Republic of Congo and Zimbabwe. The current membership of over 20 schemes still growing and will soon embrace occupational schemes and Social Security Institution in Southern Sudan and Democratic Republic of Congo.
There are two types of membership to ECASSA.
- Affiliate Members: These are institutions which are mandatory social security schemes and are responsible for one or more aspects of social security.
- Associate Members: these are institutions whose objectives are compatible with Social Security Institutions but do not qualify to become Affiliate members such as the occupation schemes.
