Welcome To The Dominica Social Security Official Website

Long-Term benefits are payable by direct deposits into the pensioners’ bank accounts on a fortnightly or monthly basis. The Claimant should indicate on the Bank Payment Order whether he wishes the cheque to be deposited on a fortnightly or monthly basis.

General Information

  • When submitting your claim please ensure that you state whether you were employed in any country with which Dominica has a Reciprocal Agreement on Social Security.
  • Every pensioner is required to complete a Certificate of Life form every year as proof that he is alive, and in receipt of his pension.
  • A person in receipt of Long-term benefit is responsible for informing the DSS office of any change in circumstances affecting his continued rights to such benefit. (For example, a widow or widower in receipt of Survivors benefit is responsible for informing the DSS if she or he remarries or cohabitates).
Please take note that it is an offense to receive benefit for which one is not eligible. Regulations provide that any amount so received MUST be refunded to the Fund.
