The General Retirement and Social Insurance Authority (GRSIA) starts implementing the new Social Insurance Law today, after it has sent circulars to employers in the government and private sectors to complete training of its staff and update its systems in a manner consistent with the new system. 

GRSIA has also updated all its electronic and service systems, such as the e-service portal of employers, the e-service portal of citizens, and its mobile application, consistent with the implementation of the Social Insurance Law. Moreover, GRSIA has upgraded its cybersecurity systems and infrastructures to keep pace with the latest security requirements. 

The new law related to the civil pension system includes a gradual increase in the early retirement age from 40 to 50, with a gradual rise in the minimum contribution period from 15 to 25 years.
