After a 2017 report described the National Insurance Scheme as out of alignment, and at 25 Billion dollars, in urgent need of another 50 billion, efforts to ensure its future viability came into sharp focus.
Established in 1971, it pays pensions and benefits in 23 areas, over 7 categories, to some 700,000 people. Executive Director Niala Persad-Poliah, and in-house actuary Feyaad Khan,
of the National Insurance Board, which oversees the scheme, provide detailed insight about the reforms now needed, and the possible inclusion of the self-employed.
