Everyone can be a member of NASSIT. It is mandatory for all employers to ensure that workers in their establishments/organisations/businesses are registered with the National Social Security and Insurance Trust (NASSIT). Even if an organisation employs only one worker, that worker must be registered and contributions paid on his behalf.
Which set of people are not compelled to become members of the NASSIT Scheme?
There are two types: the self-employed, a person who has no employer and those who are not in any formal employment. It may also include those who were, but are no longer in formal employment but wish to continue their membership. For these types of persons, the Scheme provides for VOLUNTARY MEMBERSHIP.
