Eswatini National Provident Fund
All employers are required by law to register with the Fund in terms of Registration of Contributing Employers’ Order 1975. Employers of domestic workers, however, are exempted from registering with the fund at the moment. A religious organization, church, mission, etc., may also apply to the fund to make contributions in respect of its minister(s) of religion, although technically a Minister is not an employee. Registered employers are supplied with a comprehensive guide by the Eswatini National Provident Fund giving full information about the scheme’s operations, including the detailed arrangements for collecting and accounting for contributions.
Every regularly employed Swazi citizen (there are no lower or upper age limits for members) who is employed by a registered employer under any type of contract of service, written or oral, unless engaged in an exempt category of employment, is eligible to have contributions paid in respect of him and to become a member of the Fund. If his employer takes him to work outside Eswatini, he remains an eligible employee as long as he is deemed to be ordinarily resident in the Kingdom.
Non-citizens of Eswatini are not exempted. They are prohibited.
NB: Persons entitled to exemption from contribution to social security schemes under any International Convention.
