Members Frequently Asked Questions:
You can only register once as a member of the Fund during your lifetime. Your membership number is your account number which you must quote in all correspondence or enquiries regarding your statement of account. Your account number will remain the same even when you change employers.
YES. You remain a member of the fund even when you lose your job. Even if you are no longer making contributions, your earlier savings continue to earn interest.

The amount of monthly membership contributions will vary depending on your wage or salary. However, on average, every employee pays about 5% of the monthly wage which is matched with an equal amount by the employer subject to a specified maximum.
You can also increase your contributions with any amount of money from as little as 100 Kshs using our M-PESA Topup Service service or by visiting any NSSF office nearest to you and paying at the counter.
NSSF will issue you with a FREE statement of account on demand. A statement of account is a document issued to NSSF members that shows the sum of a given member’s contributions as well as the interest that their contributions has earned so far.
