Algeria: The social protection system

Algerian State Social Protection policies include a wide range of activities and institutions which can be divided into two main parts: the social security, and state social activity. Part I covers the total beneficiaries and those who have the rights to benefit from social protection funds raised from employee’s share of standard monthly contribution and non- salaried employees. The second part relies on the principle of national solidarity which is guaranteed by the State in the form of cash or permanent or temporary selective support to institutions and social groups. It is paid on state public treasury account (state social activity).
