The mission of the Marshall Islands Social Security Administration is spelled out in the first paragraph, Chapter 1, of the Social Security Act of 1990: An Act..
" To establish for the people of the Republic of the Marshall Islands a financially sound social security system with pension benefits and early retirement, whereby workers would be ensured a measure of security in their old age and during disability, and whereby surviving spouses and surviving childrend of deceased workers would be ensured support after the loss of the family's income, and for matters connected herewith and incidental thereto."
The difficult challenges faced by the Administration in the past decade have shaped up a new culture and redefined the character of what MISSA has become today. These led us to a new course and guided us on how to think, act and make decisions for the betterment of our organization.
- Making a different: creating a mindset of doing ordinary things extraordinarily well.
- Integrity: maintaining the public's trust by good example and adhering to consistent standards of conduct in our actions and decisions.
- Stewardship: acting with an owner mentality and continuously protecting the public stake in our resources.
- Sustainability: meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
- Accountability: taking ownership to our actions by embracing a prudent spending and fund management philosophy.
