On August 18, 2023, the Lebanese Ministry of Finance issued a decree to modify the ceiling limits for Sickness and Maternity Social Security.

Starting from September 1, 2023, the monthly threshold for Sickness and Maternity contributions will be raised to LBP 18,000,000 from the existing limit of LBP 5,600,000. Accordingly, for the year 2023, this adjustment translates to an annual ceiling of  LBP 116,800,000.
