All NSSF benefits for teachers employed by TSC

NSSF stipulates the Lower Earnings Limit (LEL) at Kshs.6,000, while Kshs. 18,000 falls as the Upper Earning Limit (UEL). The fund deducts a total of 12% on the pensionable wages, 6% being from the employee and the remaining 6% charged on the employer.

However, the maximum deductions don’t exceed Kshs. 2,160 for members earning more than Kshs 18,000. The scheme deducts the contributions from the member’s salary while the employer is obliged to submit the disbursements

The following are benefits teachers employed by TSC can enjoy from National Social Security Funds (NSSF)

This is a benefit payable to members who have attained the age of 50 years and have retired from formal employment.

Funeral Grant
