|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.|
