Non-Contributory Pensions

There are two types of non-contributory pensions paid by the Social Security Fund. They are Assistance Pension and Invalidity Assistance.

Assistance Pension

This is a monthly pension paid to persons who are over 62 years of age and who have not qualified for the regular Age Pension from Social Security. A successful applicant must be in need; not having a secure source of income and having no other means of support.

Invalidity Assistance

This is a monthly pension paid to persons who are between the ages of 16 and 62 years of age and who are unable to work, but who have not qualified for the regular Invalidity Benefit from Social Security. A successful applicant must be in need; not having a secure source of income and having no other means of support.

Note

The present rate of the non-contributory pensions is $250.00 per month.
