Social Security Guide in Kuwait

Abstract: 
"Kuwait began a pension scheme on 1/1/1955, within the framework of civil employee system and retirement in the public sector. The first independent law for pensions was issued in Law Decree No. (3) of 1960, which became effective as of 1/4/1960. This covered government employees, civil and military, and was followed by an independent law for pensions and indemnities for the military, in accordance with law No. (27) of 1961, which came into force on 9/9/1961. • None of the above laws constituted an integrated system of social security. Each of them dealt with a limited aspect and covered certain sectors of permanent government employees and the military."
