About Pension Office

Maldives Pension Administration Office (MPAO) came into existence, under the Maldives Pension Act (Pension Act) which was ratified on 13th May 2009, as an independent legal entity. 

The Pension Act mandates MPAO to carry out the following functions:

    • Administer Maldives Retirement Pension Scheme (MRPS)
    • Pay state funded Old Age Basic Pension Scheme (BP)
    • Manage Pension funds
    • Establish standards, rules and guidelines related to the schemes
    • Create public awareness and educate scheme participants

MPAO plays a pivotal role in the development of the social security system in the country. Over the past two years, the initial focus of MPAO has been to establish pension schemes and introduce it to the public by creating awareness to gain greater public acceptance for the new pension system. 

With the successful implementation of both the schemes (BP & MRPS), the focus has moved on to further improve and sustain the operation through innovative means.
