Jakarta (Rifyu.com) – Member of the National Social Security Council (DJSN) Asih Eka Putri invites women who play the role of wife and mother to be more aware of financial security in their household to face the risks that may occur in the future.
“Let’s mothers, wives, Indonesian women to be aware of financial security in the household. Invite your husbands and your families to register themselves and all family members with BPJS Health and BPJS Employment,” said Asih in Jakarta, Thursday.
He said that there are at least four social guarantees that must be owned by a family, namely national health insurance from BPJS Kesehatan and work accident insurance, death insurance and old age insurance from BPJS Ketenagakerjaan.

Asih assesses that currently there are many people who work independently who have started to participate in the health insurance program. However, the participation of the self-employed workers in the employment security program is still small, so more extensive outreach and education is needed.
For family members who have worked as employees in a company or institution, added Asih, now they can also get two other additional guarantees, namely pension insurance and job loss insurance. On the other hand, self-employed workers still face limitations for the two guarantee programs.
“Currently there are limitations for those who are self-employed. If they are self-employed, they can only participate in four programs, namely health insurance, work accident insurance, death insurance and old age security,” said Asih.
“We need to fight for another program, namely pension guarantees for self-employed workers and job loss guarantees for those who are self-employed too,” he added.
According to Asih, financial security in the household is very fundamental. With financial security, this is the key for a family to survive at least the risks that may occur, especially the risks that occur to the main breadwinner that can change a family’s life.
“(Social security) is what will help secure the family’s finances and all the impacts on their lives. And the role of women, mothers and children, is very important to remind yourself or also your father or husband to be able to continue not to stop paying your contributions,” said Asih.
