Teachers' Caisse


Teachers are registered in the Caisse in different categories or Malak groups depending on their teaching contract and assignment:

  • Elementary, for preschool and elementary school teachers           
  • Middle, for middle school teachers
  • Secondary, for secondary school teachers (TD required)

When a teacher transfers from Middle to Secondary, the College will send a notice to the Caisse informing them of the change of status. Once the status is changed, the teacher keeps the higher status even if they get transferred to a lower teaching level.

Conditions for Enrollment 

  • At least a BACC II degree
  • No experience is required
  • If teacher has one (1) year of experience at another school, IC would determine whether the probation period is for one (1) or two (2) years.
  • If teacher has one (1) or two (2) years of experience at another school, teacher could be enrolled in the Caisse provided they pay all their dues and inform the Caisse of their joining IC (ضم خدمات). Otherwise, previous years of experience will not be considered in the calculation of indemnity.


Teacher becomes eligible to withdraw end-of-service indemnity form the Caisse in the following cases:

  • Retirement (age of 64)
  • Medical reasons
  • Death
  • 25 years of service in the Caisse
  • Marriage (female teachers only)

In the last two cases, the teacher may continue teaching and the new basic salary would be the same last salary recognized by the Caisse.

In all cases that entitle the teacher to withdraw indemnity from the Caisse, the College will pay an additional indemnity on the salary difference.

Calculation of Indemnity

Indemnity is calculated as follows:

  • 1 month per year for the first 10 years of service
  • 2 months per year for the next 20 years of service (between 11 and 30 years)
  • 3 months per year for the balance (31 years and above)

Advance on Indemnity

Teacher may request an advance on indemnity provided the following criteria are met:

  • 55 years of age and above
  • 30 years of service in the Caisse
  • Good and valid reason for requesting an advance
  • A collateral is available (real estate)

Pension Salary

Teacher may request a pension salary (retirement salary) in the following cases:

  • 55 years of age and above
  • 30 years of service in the Caisse

The monthly payment will be 85% of the salary recognized by the Caisse. In case of death of the teacher, the beneficiaries are: spouse, minor child, or child with disability.

Teachers' Tax

Teacher's tax is 6% of the basic salary. IC withholds the amount from the teacher's salary on a monthly basis and matches the teacher's contribution paid to the Caisse. If the teacher's basic salary at the Caisse is less than the basic salary declared by IC, the Caisse will refund the teacher any taxes paid in excess.
