The Social Security Unit at LIU serves as the liaison between students and the University’s National Social Security Funds (NSSF). Membership in the NSSF is required by law for all Lebanese students, excluding freshman and special students, and students that are older than 30 years. Obtaining the NSSF clearance is a prerequisite for all students prior to registration at the beginning of every academic year. Membership fees to the National Social Security Fund (NSSF) are annual and fixed by the government. Students, who are already affiliated to NSSF, or an equivalent fund, are required to submit an exemption form at the NSSF delegate Office
