Employee Benefits in Thailand 2021

Both employees and employers fund Thailand’s social security system. Old-age, disability, survivors, sickness and maternity benefits, and family allowances are offered under voluntary cover for self-employed persons, and individuals with at least 12 months of compulsory cover who then cease to be covered. Thai citizens working abroad, and self-employed persons are not covered by unemployment or work injury benefits. The Labor Relations Act is responsible for the provision of severance pay, sick leave, paid vacation, statutory holidays, and terms of employment. The workmen’s compensation insurance provides benefits when there is an occupational injury, illness, or death of an insured. The Thai pension system is divided into four pillars: the first pillar or state pension consists of Social Security Fund (SSF) and Old Civil Service Scheme (OCSS) to secure basic needs, the second pillar consists of the Government Pension Fund (GPF) and the National Saving Fund (NSF), and the third pillar is voluntary and privately financed personal provision which provides benefits through the Provident Fund, the Retirement Mutual Fund and the National Savings Fund. Private employee benefits are also gaining prominence in Thailand.
