Details of contribution to the Kenyan state pension are at 2.2.1.

Employee contributions to a registered Pension or Provident Fund (either a defined benefits or defined contributions fund) reduce the employee's monthly taxable pay.

The maximum relief is the lowest of:


    •     the specified rate of contributions


    •     30% of pensionable pay


    •     KES 20,000 per month

The employer can contribute to an approved fund and there is no employee tax charge on employer contributions that meet the rules above.
