Abstract: This thesis is an attempt to examine the development of Social Security, in particular, the practices, problems and prospects of pension plan in Ethiopia. The thesis discussed the theoretical issues, perspectives and experiences of other countries with regard to development of Social Security. The result of the study generally showed that the existing practice of the Ethiopian Pension Scheme has drawbacks such as lack of uniformity in legislations regarding the qualifying conditions for entitlement of benefits, contributions and payments, period of service and retirement ages of members of the scheme. It also lacks clarity so that different authorities issued several directives by defying the law. The results also show that there are insufficient contingencies with limitations and also insufficient benefits within the already maintained contingencies. The scheme found to have very low population coverage and ineffective and inefficient fund administration. The legislation had been found to include provisions that deny equal rights and opportunities within the members of the scheme. The Ethiopian Pension legislation has provisions for suspension of pension rights which is found to be against the ILO Convention and the Ethiopian Penal Code. The scheme in many cases had been operating against the law and involved in poor investment activities.
