How to Apply for Social Security Pension for an Orphan in Qatar

In the State of Qatar, it is incredibly easy, quick, and seamless when it comes to how to apply for social security pension for an orphan. The Ministry of Administrative Development Labor and Social Affairs makes certain that the citizens of the country have easy access to the many services both offline and online needed to facilitate paperwork, official documents, and other applications and submissions needed for official purposes. As such, the MADLSA offers a wide variety of services for individuals and companies to make processes as cost-effective and time-efficient as possible.

One such process is the application for social security pension for an orphan in Qatar. For eligibility, the orphan’s father must be deceased, and the orphan must not exceed 18 years of age (the exception here is that if the orphan is still enrolled in education). The orphan must also have no breadwinner, or there must be no source of income that is duly sufficient for the orphan to live. An eligible orphan will be able to apply for a social security pension from the Ministry of Administrative Development, Labor, and Social Affairs (MADLSA) when these conditions are met.

Once the eligible orphan applies, the value of the pension will be determined in accordance with the Cabinet Decision No. (46) of 2014. This will determine the pension’s amount that is due to the categories that are clearly stated in Law No. (38) of 1995. This is in regards to Social Security and all of its necessary provisions.

Moreover, the process is currently for offline processing. Note that the custodian needs to have a court ruling that pertains to the custody of the orphan. The aforementioned child must be enrolled in education as well. Furthermore, the applicant must be a permanent resident of Qatar to qualify.

As for the offline process itself, you may simply download the application form that is readily available in the service information page of the MADLSA website. You will able to access this after selecting the “Social Security Department” menu once you reach the “E-Services & E-Forms” page.

Make sure that all of the relevant data is included in the application form, and that all details are accurate and complete. Then, submit the application form. Be sure to include all the required documents such as the death certificate of the father to the Social Security Department.

It is important to be aware of the necessary processes in order to claim any pension amount as seamlessly as possible. Any non-compliance will result in delays, as well as in the rejection of any pending applications. Therefore, you must first thoroughly check all of the required documents and the eligibility conditions before submitting any sort of application to any MADLSA service to facilitate approval.
