This policy brief recently launched by the International Labour Organization (ILO)- offers a summary of a more detailed report examining the potential for a multi-tiered child benefit in Viet Nam. A multi-tiered child benefit can act as an incentive for workers to join VSS, while at the same time ensuring children’s basic right to social protection. It therefore has great potential to bridge the social insurance/assistance divide and is fully consistent with the Government’s objectives of building an integrated ‘multi-pillared’ or ‘multi-tiered’ social security system.
