Social security gap in the coffee sector in Indonesia

This study aims to provide policy recommendations for improving social security coverage (BPJS Ketenagakerjaan or BPJS TK), by exploring how social security schemes are implemented in different sectors and revealing the attitude in social security between different types of employment and different chains.

The study confirms some problems in accessing social security.
From 111 non-wage earners who mostly are farmers, only one farmer with 2 permanent employees who have registered the employees to BPJS TK. There are many reasons for the respondents for not registering BPJS TK; the top response is that they have never heard BPJS TK and followed by the reason that they do not know how to register.
