Pension Notice - Feb 26, 2021

About us

In 1965, the ruling Antigua Labour Party (ALP) Government realized the need for more adequate provision for the Nation’s poor and indigent and articulated, in its five-year (1966 – 1970) Development Plan, its intention to replace the existing Poor Relief System – a National Provident Fund.

The Antigua and Barbuda Social Security Board (ABSSB) is responsible for the funds collected and the payment of cash benefits to contributors. In addition, the Organization has a mandate to inform its stakeholders about the programmes, benefits and services provided as well as any pending parametric and policy changes.

Vision

We are a customer-oriented, strategy-focused and technology-driven institution with a commitment to excellence.

Mission

To efficiently provide Social Security services through the sustained efforts of strong leadership.
