Welcome To The Dominica Social Security Official Website

The following categories of insured persons may be eligible for Voluntary contributors status:

  • An employee ordinarily resident in Dominica who is transferred to work overseas by a locally based employer in continuation of his work in Dominica. His employer must continue paying contributions as if the employee was still based in Dominica. However, such coverage by the DSS shall only continue for a maximum period of one year. Subsequent to this, DSS coverage can only continue if the employee contributes as a Voluntary contributor.
  • An employee who is no longer engaged in gainful employment in Dominica may opt to continue paying as a Voluntary contributor providing that he satisfies the conditions relating to Voluntary insurance coverage.
  • A Self-employed person who is no longer engaged in gainful employment in Dominica, may opt to continue paying as a Voluntary contributor providing that he satisfies the conditions relating to Voluntary insurance.
