One of the major initiatives of the Social Security Board's Transformational Strategic Plan for the triennium 2019 - 2021 is the introduction of an e-services software platform for the administration of its Social Insurance Programme.
Anguilla has been transformed into a smart, resilient, diversified, inclusive and green economy with universal social security coverage and full employment; enabled by a customer-centric and technology-driven ASSB.
Over the years the Board has supported many projects including tennis through the Anguilla Tennis Academy, basketball, cricket, environmental initiatives, creative arts, music development including Jazz Festivals and steel pan, education, HIV/AIDS awareness, youth development, development of health facilities and support of health initiatives. Do you have a great idea that needs funding? Submit your project today.
The Anguilla Social Security Board established the Social Security Development Fund in 1986 for the purpose of funding socially desirable projects. It is funded by 3.75% of the contribution income and a percentage of investment income based on balance of reserves including the Development Fund Reserve at the end of the preceding year. In 2005 the Social Security Board created an Endowment Fund where once available $250,000.00 is transferred from the SSDF to that Fund each year to build an endowment whereby the Fund will eventually be able to sustain itself and fund projects from the interest generated by endowment. At the end of 2017, the Endowment Fund stands at $2,550,000.
Projects should not be limited to what the Board has identified as its areas of concern - HIV/AIDS Pandemic, Education, Youth Development, and Health. Over the years the Board has supported a number of projects including tennis through the Anguilla Tennis Academy, basketball, cricket, environmental initiatives, creative arts, music development including Jazz Festivals and steel pan, education, HIV/AIDS awareness, youth development, development of health facilities and support of health initiatives.
Project proposals should be sent to the Director of Social Security, The James Ronald Webster Building, The Valley, and should reach him on or before March 31st, 2019 for consideration for the first half of the year.
All projects once approved by the Board will be monitored by the Board appointed Project Officer.
In June 2019 there will be a 2nd
