RIYADH: The Taqdeer program is a nonprofit initiative launched in January of last year by the General Organization for Social Insurance. The program caters to Saudi pensioners in appreciation of their service to the country.
One of its primary goals is to provide benefits to retirees and beneficiaries of the GOSI in cooperation with partners from the private and public sectors across the Kingdom.
The program provides a variety of services and exclusive offers to its beneficiaries through its dedicated online platform in partnership with many companies in the Kingdom, including the Le Meridien hotel, Shaker Group, Dallah Hospitals, Saudia airline and Abdullatif Jameel Financing.
All retired Saudi men and women in the public and private sectors and their dependents are eligible to access the program’s benefits.
One of its services offers retirees new work opportunities in line with their professional experience through the years, while another service provides special discounts on hotels, education, entertainment, medicine and transportation throughout all regions of the Kingdom.
Pensioners can also apply for loans through various financing schemes within the program to fulfill passion projects.
The program also organizes many activities and events for members in all regions of the Kingdom.
The Taqdeer platform can be accessed at https://www.tqr.sa. Currently, Arabic is the main language used on the platform.
