The only mandatory social security regime in Morocco is the one managed by the Caisse Nationale de Sécurité Sociale (CNSS) fund.

Other private social security organisms are available in Morocco but are not mandatory.

Employees must contribute to the social security regime managed by the CNSS.

The CNSS rates are as follows and apply to the gross salary, excluding exempted allowances and indemnities:

Contribution Employee portion (%) Employer portion (%) Monthly salary limit (MAD)
Family allocation - 6.40 -
Social allocation 4.48 8.98 6,000
