Universal social security

Welcome to the world of social security!

Social security is something that concerns all of us.

It was in order to promote collaboration in the area of social security that the International Social Security Association (ISSA) was founded in 1927.

ISSA is an international organisation which has a membership consisting of the providers of and institutions involved in all the various aspects of social security in countries throughout the world.

These cover all forms of mandatory social protection that have become established through legislation or common usage and that are an integral element of the social security systems of the countries in question.
