Abstract

This study was conducted in Dar es Salaam comprising of six social security schemes in Tanzania with the main purpose of analyzing to what extent the social security schemes in Tanzania meet the International Labour Organization’s (ILO) minimum social security standards provided by the ILO Convention of 1952. The study findings are that although the social security schemes in Tanzania have done their best to offer social security benefits however such schemes fall short of what is stipulated in the ILO Convention 1952. Findings indicate further that the non fulfilment of the minimum standards is contributed by a number of factors such as poverty and low income of the individuals. With response to the findings, this study recommends, at chapter five, that there needs to carry out legal, policy and institutional reforms plus an over haul the entire legal regime governing pensions so as to widen the benefits being offered to meet the ILO minimum standards. The study recommends also that the ongoing Constitutional reviews should also ensure that the new constitution accommodates the right to social security as a basic human right, which need to be enforced. The constitutional protection of social security and pension rights should be extended to cover all citizen and residents without any discrimination whatsoever. Comprehensive legal and regulatory reforms in the Tanzania’s social security system are necessary to enable establishment and provision of social security benefits to the tunes of international minimum standards.
