More than 9 million people were insured in 2020 by the National Social Security Fund (CNSS), including nearly 3 million working people, more than 588,000 retirees and more than 4 million beneficiaries.
According to the data available MoroccoLatestNews, during the 2020 pandemic year, the CNSS provided nearly 4.5 billion DH of social benefits while the social contributions of the insured amounted to nearly 7.5 billion DH. In addition, the number of files filed on average per day is 18,645 with a reimbursement period for processing costs reduced to only 6 days, which remains an achievement.
In addition, the number of employees declared to the CNSS for the year 2020 reached 3,308,508 people with some 269,849 companies affiliated to the fund. Some 642,503 people thus benefit from pensions for an amount exceeding 12 billion DH while the number of beneficiaries of family allowances is over 1.471 million for an amount exceeding 9 billion DH.
More than a million employees on leave have benefited from lump-sum compensation
With the pandemic, several citizens found themselves inactive. The State has thus set up, under high royal instructions, the Covid-19 Special Fund which has allowed workers on leave to benefit from a lump sum compensation amounting to 2,000 DH per month.
Thus, and at the end of March 2021, 1,111,096 workers registered with the CNSS had benefited from this lump sum compensation for an overall envelope of 6.2 billion DH, according to the CNSS. A figure which remains important even if a category of workers (in particular restaurateurs and nightclub workers), were not entitled to this compensation.
For the informal sector, which was also entitled to state aid during the confinement period (from March to June 2020) and which varied between 800 and 1200 DH depending on the number of people per family. In addition, some 5.5 million workers in the informal sector have benefited from this aid for an overall envelope exceeding 16 billion DH.
