One of the major initiatives of the Social Security Board's Transformational Strategic Plan for the triennium 2019 - 2021 is the introduction of an e-services software platform for the administration of its Social Insurance Programme.
Anguilla has been transformed into a smart, resilient, diversified, inclusive and green economy with universal social security coverage and full employment; enabled by a customer-centric and technology-driven ASSB.
Social Security is a safety net for the insured worker. In many ways, Social Security is like private insurance. Just as a private insurance. Company collects premiums, Social Security collects contributions. And where there is need and the requirements are met, Social Security pays benefits. The big difference is that while a private insurance company can pick and choose the people it will insure Social Security insures every legally employed person in the country. As long as the legal requirements are met, Social Security cannot refuse to include anybody in the program.
The Minister of Finance is responsible for Social Security. A Board of Directors is responsible for general supervision of the system and it is administered by a Chief Administrative Officer (called the Director) and staff at the Social Security Office.
