The National Insurance Board of Trinidad and Tobago (NIBTT) pays benefits to persons who register and pay contributions to the National Insurance System.
Over the years significant changes have been made to the National Insurance System. These changes provided:
Employed persons who earn $200.00 or more per week must be registered and are required to contribute to the National Insurance System. These contributions allow insured persons to qualify for a range of benefits.
Employed persons earning less than $200.00 per week and who are contributors as at March 3, 2014 and continued in insurable employment on March 4, 2014 will continue to participate in the National Insurance System. Today, we stand proud, adding value to our customers' lives by offering 23 benefits in 7 categories. These benefits are designed to alleviate the economic burdens.
