How to pay NHIF via MPESA for Company

  1. Ensure that you have sufficient funds in your M-Pesa account.

It is important to note that every registered self-employed member is required to make a monthly contribution of KES 500 to their accounts.

Existing members are required to pay on or before the 9th of the following month to avoid penalties. If payments are made after the 9th of the following month, then a penalty of 10% (KES 50) of the voluntary monthly contribution will be surcharged.

A member will be required to pay outstanding arrears and/or penalties to access services. If one makes an error during the process of payment, for example, if one inputs their NHIF Member Number as the M-PESA Account Number instead of their National Identification Number, they can visit the NHIF Accounts Department at any of their offices with a copy of their National Identification Card with the M-PESA message they received from Safaricom capturing the erroneous transaction they made and they will get assistance.

NHIF intends to capture the amounts deducted from every employee every month to ensure faster delivery of services to all the members and their dependants.

This is done by way of employers submitting to NHIF a list of their employee’s brief details such as name, national/passport id etc, together with the respective rate each employee should be deducted.

All this is done online for faster and efficient service delivery to all their clients. They have introduced a far more efficient & faster method of collecting employers monthly payroll byproducts to NHIF via the Byproduct system.

Due to the different types of software applications that employers use to capture their payrolls, they suggest that you use a standardized software application to capture your monthly NHIF byproduct such as Microsoft Excel.

Paying NHIF contributions via M-Pesa is a fast, secure, and cost-effective way to ensure that you are covered by NHIF.

With the convenience that comes with this payment option, there is no excuse for not making your NHIF contributions on time.

It is also important to regularly check your NHIF contributions to ensure that you are up to date with your payments.
