House panel reviewing Audit Bureau report on Social Security Corporation

AMMAN — The Lower House financial committee objected on Thursday to violations listed in the Audit Bureau report against the Social Security Corporation (SSC).

The report was related to around JD3 million in SSC contributions to labour union budgets and scholarships of the children of labourers and SSC employees during the period 2007-09 which, the bureau said, violated Article 12 of the Social Security Law.

Audit Bureau President Mustafa Barari said the bureau sent an official memo to the Prime Ministry calling for retrieving the money.

SSC Director Nadia Rawabdeh said the corporation’s board disagreed with the decision, adding that the SSC sent a letter justifying its position to the Prime Ministry last month and is now awaiting the Cabinet’s reply to the Audit Bureau on whether or not to retrieve the contributions.

The MPs agreed with the Audit Bureau in listing the SSC board’s decision to dispense around JD14,600 in financial compensations to its members as a violation.
