The Royal Government of Cambodia has placed Social Protection at the core of its priorities.With such strong commitment, the NSSF proposed a new draft law on social security, include employment injury, health insurance, pension, unemployment and disability schemes, to cover the employee under public sector and private sectors.

The Social Security Protection Law moves fast

The Pension Scheme would be implemented by 2020

A number of consultation of the draft law has been organized within the government domains, however, the consultation with employers and social partners were limited due to the time pressured by the government to move forward as quick as possible. The new law is likely present new features and challenges of the contribution to additional social security schemes that would span across business sectors.


  • The principle of social security, best practices and lessons learned from countries in the region related to Pension Scheme and how it works.
  • Employers' roles in the operation and management of the system.
  • Main features and provisions under the current draft regulations.
  • High-level assessments on the potential impacts of the new law on the business operations in Cambodia, and how we should prepare for the implementation.
