The regulatory framework for employee benefits in Turkey
The Turkish social security system is largely similar to the Continental model, with employee contributions made according to their insurance and payroll status. Contributions are collected in a joint pool and pensions are paid, on becoming eligible, according to contributions made. From 1990, a number of financial problems arose in the Turkish social security system due to implementation of early retirement, an increase in unregistered employment, and low rates of contributions and income subject to contributions. The system does not cover the entire population, and does not have sufficient protection against poverty. This unsystematic method limited consistency in standards with respect to employee rights and obligations. Social security reform was introduced in 2008 to address these issues.
