The NSSF Member app created by the National Social Security Fund (NSSF) was awarded for its innovation and use of best practices by the 39th board of the ASEAN Social Security Association (ASSA).

The award was presented to NSSF’s Deputy Director Heng Sophannarith by ASSA Secretary General Indrajid Nurmukti at a ceremony that took place in Luang Prabang province in Laos on November 24.

“The evaluation and the presentation of this recognition for the NSSF Member app came from the evaluation committee of the ASEAN Social Security Association. It is another point of pride for NSSF and it is the sixth award that the NSSF has received from ASSA to recognize our success in implementing the social security fund for our members,” the NSSF said in its press statement.

The NSSF Member app is a mobile phone application that allows NSSF members to check their personal information, their monthly contribution totals and reports on their use of public health services at partner hospitals as well as find the locations of NSSF partner hospitals.

Also, on November 23, the National Social Assistance Fund (NSAF) also received a best practices award for the implementation of its cash transfer programme for poor and vulnerable households affected by Covid-19 from the ASSA.
