Social security in Guinea Bissau

In Guinea Bissau, employers and employees are both required to contribute to the country’s social security system, managed by the Guinea Bissau National Institute of Social Providence (INSS).

Employers in Guinea Bissau are obliged to submit monthly social security contributions equivalent to 14% of their employees’ monthly gross salaries to the INSS. Employees, on the other hand, are required to contribute 8% of their monthly gross income towards social security.
