The Social Security Act (Cap 318) basically provides for two schemes, the Contributory Scheme, and the Non Contributory Scheme. Eligibility under the contributory scheme requires that specific contribution conditions are satisfied, whereas eligibility under the non contributory scheme requires that specific conditions of a means test are satisfied.
The aim of the first session on Social Security Benefits is to provide basic information on contributory short term benefits, family benefits, and non contributory benefits as administered by the Department of Social Security. Thus we will cover the several types of benefits and their eligibility conditions under the Contributory and the Non-contributory schemes.

The information provided in this session should primarily apply to accountants and HR managers, however it should also prove fruitful to the general public.
Edward Buttigieg joined the Social Security Department in 1986 and currently holds the post of Director responsible for the operations of all the Contributory Pensions, Short-term Benefits, and Family benefits administered by the Department under the Social Security Act (Cap. 318).  He is a member of the Working Group on Ageing Issues of the Social Protection Committee, and a member of the Governmental Committee on the European Social security Code and the Revised European Social Charter.
