Among them, approximately 1.2 million subscribers are non-Jordanians.

Subaihi added that an important indicator of the cumulative number of subscribers is that the majority did not receive a retirement pension. Only 8.3 percent of the cumulative number of subscribers have received retirement pensions as of now.

He explained that the rest either received a one-time compensation for their subscription period or remain inactive subscribers.

Regarding Jordanians only, Subaihi stated that the percentage of those receiving retirement pensions from the total cumulative number of Jordanian Social Security subscribers does not exceed 11.5 percent, noting that this is a very low percentage that should be carefully studied.

He clarified that the current number of active subscribers has reached 1.543 million, with non-Jordanians constituting 13 percent of them, while females make up 28 percent of active subscribers.
