RajSSP - Social Security Pension Schemes

The Government of Rajasthan has launched an important social welfare program called the Rajasthan Pension Scheme, or Rajasthan Social Security Pension (RajSSP) Scheme.

It offers financial assistance to those who are weaker members of society, such as elderly farmers, widows, people with impairments, and senior citizens.

The eligibility requirements, application procedure, benefits, and other important details of the RajSSP scheme are covered in detail in the article below.

Overview of the Scheme

RajSSP is designed to provide financial security and enhance the quality of life for its beneficiaries. As of the latest data, over 89.6 lakh people have benefited from the scheme, with approximately 58.9 lakh senior citizens, 22.1 lakh specially able people, 6.4 lakh single women, and around 2.1 lakh old farmers receiving its benefits.

This scheme complements the central aid provided under the National Social Assistance Programme (NSAP) and is rooted in the principles of the National Policy for Social Assistance for the poor, introduced in 1995.
