Micro Pension Plan (MPP)

The Micro Pension Plan (MPP) is a savings plan created for, but not restricted to, self-employed individuals. It is also for persons working in organizations with less than 3 employees.

The Micro Pension Plan refers to an arrangement under the Contributory Pension Scheme (CPS) that allows the self-employed and persons working in organizations with less than three (3) employees to make financial contributions towards the provision of pension for their retirement or upon incapacitation.
