Mozambican workers can now check their social security contributions on their mobile phone as part of the National Institute of Social Security’s modernisation programme, the institution announced yesterday.
The application, called “M-Contribution (My Contribution, My Benefit)”, will allow follow-up on INSS processes, and facilitate the roll out of more digital services in the future, according to an INSS statement sent to Lusa.
INSS chairman Francisco Mazoio says the program will streamline services and facilitate INSS processes.
“It is a communication mechanism between beneficiaries and the social security system. It will no longer be necessary for workers to go to the INSS for information about their contributory status,” he said.
Mozambican President Filipe Nyusi, quoted in the communiqué, says it is imperative to push forward with technology-based strategies and policies.
“The fact that we are moving from a manual system to a computerised one means that we are moving towards something better. This platform will greatly assist monitoring across the system,” the head of state says.
