Recovery of Social Security Contributions: Support from Members of Parliament Requested

On the high instructions of the Director General, a working session was held between officials of the Regional Directorate for the Littoral and South-West (DRLSO) of the National Social Insurance Fund (NSIF) and the Parliamentary Network for the Promotion of Insurance (REPPAS), on Wednesday, October 28, 2020, in Douala.

It is in a friendly and serious tone that the exchange took place between the president of REPPAS, Honourable Benilde Djeumeni, at the head of a delegation of nine parliamentarians including seven deputies and one senator, and the regional director of the CNPS, Jean-Paul Biboum, accompanied by the heads of social welfare centres of Douala-Bonanjo, Akwa and the informal sector of Douala.

At the start of the discussions, the parliamentarians congratulated the NSIF; Honourable Koupit Adamou, SG of REPPAS, said he was "very impressed by the management and quality of service", Honourable Marlyse Soppo saluted "the immediate implementation by the NSIF of the instruction of the President of the Republic on the 20% increase rate of old pensions", while Senator Patience Minyem saw " an institution that is eager to improve and innovate for the well-being of the people".

In return, Jean Paul Biboum speaking on behalf of the Director General said he was "happy to know that members of parliament are aware of and recognise the efforts made on a daily basis by the NSIF to improve the quality of service, despite the persistent difficulties in recovering social security contributions, the main source of funding for the social security system".

However, the observation is clear: it is difficult for the NSIF to pay benefits without contributions. REPPAS is therefore called upon to help sensitise and improve the legislation in force, in order to establish a culture of social security, to thwart the many devices used and abused by a host of uncivil employers and to shed more light on the situation of the population.

The NSIF is indeed ready. It has already multiplied its presence throughout the territory, improved its results-based management policy (with a financial cushion of 300 billion reserves and 500 billion CFA francs of investments for the future, editor's note), reduced the number of documents to be provided to benefit from social benefits, favoured the digitalisation of services, facilitated the payment of debts to employers among others, for the best of our social security.

In view of the numerous applause that followed the presentation, the call from the NSIF seems to have met the right audience. After almost one hour of exchanges, the President of REPPAS, Honourable Benilde Djeumeni, promised that "the working sessions will multiply, in order to find adequate solutions to the problems raised " and to work for the best possible collaboration.
