RG-T4026 : Laboratory of Digital Social Security

Project Status: Implementation

Despite being designed to protect workers, social security systems in LAC leave many workers disconnected and vulnerable to external shocks. The design of these systems is rooted in an outdated perspective that neglects new work modalities and dynamics of the informality of labor markets. The objective of this TC is to test and rigorously evaluate innovative pilot programs using digital insurance mechanisms for platform workers in Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, and Brazil. We expect lessons learned to help scale up solutions ready for the gig economy's new work modalities and contribute to the region's policy discussion on gig work and its labor market implications. We will generate evidence to support recommendations for tailoring specific solutions to insure workers.
