Insurance and social protection expert, Musa Al-Subaihi, wrote a post on his Facebook page, during which he asked a question about the prime minister and ministers not being subject to social security retirement.

Al-Subaihi stressed, “There is a clear distortion in the retirement systems in the Kingdom. While we find a large segment of citizens without any pension, we find another segment that receives more than one salary, and some of them receive three pension salaries, one from the insurance, the second from civil or military retirement, and the third from professional unions.” “.

Here is the full text of the post:

There is a clear distortion in the pension systems in the Kingdom. While we find a large segment of citizens without any pension, we find another segment that receives more than one salary, and some of them receive three pension salaries, one from the insurance, the second from civil or military retirement, and the third from professional unions..!

The imbalance exists more among some senior officials in the state, whether current or former, some of them receive a retirement salary from social security, and at the same time receive the salary for the job they occupy in the government sector, and what is worse is that some ministers may be retired on the early retirement system according to the Security Law and that it He is still under the age of sixty or is still under the age of fifty-five, so he continues to receive his early salary along with his salary as a minister, which unfortunately is what the law allows, because the appointment to the position of a minister is subject during his period as a minister to the Civil Retirement Law, while it should have been done Subjecting this work to the insurance law, as is the case with various other positions in the state, especially those of the highest category..!

The pension systems in the Kingdom are distorted, lack justice, and involve ugly discrimination between citizens, which calls for attention, and the initiative to address all the imbalances in it, it is not fair for the working minister to combine his salary from the ministry and the pension of the insurance at the same time, especially the retirement salary In order to remedy this imbalance, I suggest that the ministers and the prime minister, when they are appointed, be subject to the provisions of the Social Security Law, just like other state employees of all categories, then everyone will be equal before the law, and then they will not be able to A working minister is not permitted to combine his salary from the ministry with his early retirement salary, except in accordance with the conditions and controls specified by law. Retirement of the guarantee, whether early or otherwise..!

I admit that I tried at the end of 2013, when there was a parliamentary discussion of the 2014 Security Law, to convince a number of deputies of the need to press for the inclusion of ministers and high-ranking officials with the provisions of the Social Security Law during their tenure in their positions and to stop being subject to the provisions of the Civil Retirement Law to gradually eliminate the phenomenon of combining more than one salary I retired, but unfortunately I failed to do so..!
