  1. FAQ
    1. What is meant by the governmental and private sectors?
      1. The Federal Law on Pension and Social Security covers all nationals working in both the public and private sector all over UAE, except for Abu Dhabi where the workers are subject to Abu Dhabi pension law.

        It’s worth noting the private sector entities with headquarters in Abu Dhabi, Citi Bank for instance, are subject to the federal pension law, i.e. they shall be registered at GPSSA, and their other branches across the emirates, including Abu Dhabi, shall be subject to this Law.

        As per entities with headquarters in Abu Dhabi, including their branches all over UAE, they shall be subject to the Abu Dhabi pension law, First Abu Dhabi bank for instance.

        The Governmental Sector:

        • Ministries, public institutions, , agencies and companies, and banks in which the Federal Government owns shares.
        • Local governmental authorities (Governments of Dubai, Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah, Umm Al Quwain, Fujairah)

        The Private Sector:

        • Each natural or juridical person (Sole Proprietorship, office, company) employing national workers wherein the federal government is not a shareholder.​​​
