Executive summary
 
The Dominican Republic has a comprehensive social security system. There are three schemes under which social security benefits are granted to the country’s residents and citizens: a contributory scheme that covers employees, a contributory subsidized scheme for self-employed individuals and technicians that is yet to be implemented, and a fully subsidized scheme that covers unemployed and severely disabled persons who do not have a stable income and earn below the minimum wage. The 2003 economic crisis forced the government to reduce public social spending, discontinue several programs and focus on the social protection of the country’s poorest residents through the introduction of the solidarity card and programs like the eating first incentive program, attendance incentive and incentive for higher education
