THE SOCIAL Security Regulatory Authority (SSRA) has called upon employers to allow new employees join social security fund of their choice.
Addressing a Press Conference in Dar es Salaam on Friday, SSRA's Head of Public Relations and Promotion Ms Sarah Msika said that employers from both the government and private sectors should give equal opportunity to all social security funds, also allow their employees join where they want.
She added that all social security funds should adhere to laws and regulations when registering new members. The law allows an employee to join more than one fund.
Ms Msika urged self employed people like farmers, vendors, tailors and others below 60 years old to join the such pension funds because they have equal rights like those officially employed.
The pension funds include Government Employees Pension Fund (GEPF), Public Service Pension Fund (PSPF), Parastatal Pensions Fund (PPF), Local Authorities Pensions Fund (LAPF) and National Social Security Fund (NSSF).
