Outcome summary

BJPS Employment piloted social security agents and a mobile registration system.

Outcome achieved

In January 2018 BPJS Employment started to pilot social security agents (PERISAI or Sharoushi); and introduced an online registration through a mobile application, and expanded partnership with banks to improve accessibility to social security.

ILO's contribution to the outcome

With the support of Government of Japan, ILO jointly organised a sensitisation workshop with BPJS and PERISAI agents in East Java in May 2018; following the recommendations published in ‘ILO. 2019. Social security gap in the coffee sector in Indonesia.’ ILO held several discussions with BPJS and MOM’s departments on the future IT reforms when introducing an employment insurance system, initiated during a fact-finding mission in Aug 2018.

Gender equality & non-discrimination

Women and men were represented in the activities conducted (training and dialogue forums) during May 2018-May 2019. During the same period, all assessments conducted (on pension, social security inspection and value-chain analysis) carefully looked at the situation of men and women and specific recommendations formulated. The assessment of the pension system in particular include a recommendation to introduce a universal social pension scheme that will guarantee at least a basic income security for all in old age.

Social dialogue

Tripartite constituents were consulted on the related issues to employment insurance, social security inspection and social security extension to workers in the coffee sector and SMEs through several rounds of consultation/training workshops.
