AMMAN — Social Security Corporation (SSC) Spokesperson Musa Sbeihi on Monday said that only 48 charities registered with SSC are subject to the provisions of the corporation’s law with registered workers, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

In a press statement released on Monday, Sbeihi said that the number of covered employees working in charities amounts to 232 in 3,700 registered charities in Jordan, according to data from the Ministry of Social Development, which means that more than 98 per cent of charities do not cover their employees with the SSC.

He added that the SSC law requires each officially registered establishment employing more than one worker to enrol itself and its employees with the SSC. Sbeihi urged all charity organisations with paid employees to register with the corporation.
