368 thoughts on “Check NHIF Status | How to Check the NHIF Account Contributions Status

    1. It is not possible. What you can check is the last time you made a contribution. This is done through your phone by following the instructions in this post.

      how can one know his NHIF number? forgot mine and cant get time to visit their offices

    3. Visit any Nhif accredited hospital with your id and you will get your number as its in the system

    4. You can also make a call using one of the numbers listed in the article and they'll be able to help you with your NHIF number.

      yes you can so long as you can verify that you are the contributor or dependant

    6. Why do I find another dependant in my account who i don't even know.. Who included him/her in my account. That's very serious

      Kindly send for me my statement since may 2016

  1. how can i get my NHIF number?

    1. Send an sms with ID ***** where ***** is your ID number and send it to 21101. You'll receive a message with your NHIF number, your name, your ID number, DOB and the last month you made a contribution.

      I sent an sms with my ID but what I'm getting is "INVALID NHIF CARD NUMBER." I didn't collect my card despite my employer having have deducted my salary to pay for it for four years. Does it mean I'm not in the system?

    3. this doesnt work. Instead i get details i dont understand. I keep getting the message "Asante sana. For status info,SMS Member No. or ID No starting with ID Eg: 1234567 Or ID 23456789 For help SMS 21101" Ithought that after sending my ID number to 21101 as indicated, I should be able to get my membership number but instead its even more complicated.

    I haven't paid for a few months and would like to top up, is there a way I can find out the amount I need to top up without going to NHIF offices?

    1. You can make a call to NHIF to find out the backlog of your payments and the penalties by dialing one of the numbers listed in the article above.

      Alternatively, you can just pay the principal amount and wait for 60 days to be able to access the NHIF services.

  3. can i start contributions at nhif after i stopped when my employment ended?

    1. I don't see why not. I however have a feeling that you need to catch up with your monthly contributions.

    2. Unknown, you can also just start contributing without catching up on your payment and paying the penalties. The only catch is that you will not be able to access NHIF services for 60 days.

    1. Modern mom!lol
      anyway someone asked up there if one can be treated without a card with just the number and there was no answer given.
      waiting to hear for myself

    2. Im following and i want also to check my statement online….pliz give us the proceedure

  4. I have been doing my contribution since 2011 but early this year i stopped but i resumed last month will that affect me incase i want to use it in two months to come?

    1. I asked and they said that when you resume payments, you have to wait for 60 days. In your case, there should be no problem at all when you use the card in 2 months.

      thanks, based mom.

  5. How can i check my NHIF status on the internet, not via mobile phone

    1. Currently you can't. You'll soon be able to once these features are launched.

  6. Married couples who are employed,are they both eligible to nhif contributions?

    1. Yes. Your spouse's card will cover you though if need arises and you are a dependant.

    2. It is in fact compulsory for any Kenyan 18 years + in formal employment. Though the spouses can use either of the cards to claim benefits, only one card may be used at a time.

  7. I pay for my grandmother nhif contributions is it possible for it to cover her depedants
    ie two orphaned kids she stays with.

    1. As far as their stipulations go, they only cover the contributor, declared spouse and children. You might have to contact NHIF directly to get a better answer to your question.

  8. hi modern mom,there is a number i was given when i was registering with NHIF and still i was issued with a card that has another different number….did they made a mistake or that's the system?

    1. To confirm, just send an sms with ID ***** where **** is your ID number and the member number you recieve in the text is your NHIF number.

  9. hi, i texted my id no to 2110 and it indicated 2016-01 as my status. Does that mean I am covered till 2016 January?
    Best regards.

    1. That's a very good question and Yes, I think it means you've paid your January subscription for next year.

    my husband is a self employed contributor.as the wife i now have a job.how do i use his number for my employer to pay my nhif deductions.or i need to register a new number

    1. You will have to register your own. It is compulsory for every employed Kenyan to be an NHIF member. You can put your husband and kids as your dependents as well. Though you can use either of the cards to access treatment, you can not use them both at the same time.

      Kindly visit your nearest NHIF branch to get started.

  13. i have been doing my own casual jobs since i stopped being in Employment in January 2015. I haven't made any contribution since then. Where do i start from to start contributing as an individual

  14. Thanks for your response.

    So if i start paying monthly contributions of Kshs.500 everything will
    be ok.i.e I wont be charged/penalized for not contributing for a whole


    1. Yes daniel. You just won't be able to use your card for 2 months. After that you'll be able to access all NHIF services.

  18. Hi NHIF if i pay for example November contribution sh500,then the same month i pay another sh500,so will this be carried forward to the next month?

  19. I travelled abroad after resigning and hence stopped contibuting the fund.Its been 6 years now.Roughly how much would be the penalty, assuming am to contribute 500KES per month?

    1. Instead of paying the back log and the penalties for the 6 years, just pay the Ksh. 500 from now henceforth. You'll just not be able to use your card for the next 60 days.

  20. Am a member already. Can I ammend my details to cover my baby and wife using the same card I have.

    1. Of course. Just visit any NHIF branch with their details and you'll be given a form to fill. You'll need to carry a copy of your wife's ID and your kid's birth certificate.

    hey modern mom,my spouse is the one who contributes though am also employed,is it in order or we are both needed to contribute?

    1. It is compulsory for every employee to be a member of NHIF. You can use either of the cards to get medical services, but as long as you are employed your employer should be deducting from your salary.

    Hi Modern Mom
    Does NHIF cover EYE and Dental treatments for Non civil servants.(outpatient)

    1. If you go to a public hospital, you pay nothing for everything including surgery. Absolutely nothing! For other hospitals, you'll have to visit the NHIF website to see whether your hospital of choice has an agreement with NHIF or not.

  23. Hi, i was avoluntary contributor and stopped like 4yrs ago since i flew outside country, how much am i surposed to pay, do i need to pay for all those years i dint pay,right now is there any fine or i just start afresh

    1. Anonymous says:

      You do not necessarily have to pay for the 4 years your were not subscribing. You can start your payments now but you will not be able to use the card for 2 months. That's what NHIF told me when I had a similar issue.

  24. Am employed and paying my contribution, am also paying my parents voluntary contribution every month. Can all this be deducted by my employer from my salary instead of remitting monthly in cash?

    1. As far as I know, those are different entities and thus not possible. Confirm from your nearest NHIF branch kindly.

  25. IF 9TH which the deadline contribution for voluntary contributors falls on a weekend can u pay the contribution on monday without penalties.what will happen if i pay after 9th of the month

    1. But after the 9th. You pay the principal amount plus 50% more. So Ksh. 750 instead of Ksh. 500.

    2. Hi, just to confirm, if I'm making a payment for Feb, I would need to make payment by 9th Feb or 9th March? Also, in case I miss the 9th deadline and paid the principal without penalty, does this take me back-to the 60day waiting period? Thanks!

  26. I changed employment and the records show that my contributions are being made by my old employer yet my new employer is also paying, what could be the problem? will this affect my claims latter?

  27. Hi Modern Mom..I have sent my ID no to 6443 and another one to 21101 no one responded to me wats up?

    How can I change my NHIF status online incase i want to add my child?

    1. For formal members it takes 30 days, for informal members it takes 60 days.

    2. Hi modern mom, could you kindly explain to me the difference between informal and formal payments

    3. A formal member is every single Kenyan who is employed. It is compulsory for every employed Kenya to be a member of NHIF. Your contributions are subtracted from your salary by your employer and the amount varies depending on how much you earn.

      Informal members are those not employed, but make monthly contributions of sh. 500 on a voluntary basis.

      I hope that clears it.

    1. hahaha. You just made my day! That's a little ambitious but I think we'll get there some day.

  35. Hi Modern Mom, i find your responses very helpful and informed. Now i have a patient who needs to undergo full knee replacement at a cost of 350k at either of PCEA Kikuyu or Tenweeg hospitals. The only surgeon in Tenweeg proceeded on leave till July. Since the patient's hospital of choice is Tenweeg, can she be refered to Kikuyu? and will NHIF pay the full bill?

    1. Yes. Kikuyu orthopedic Hospital is in category B of NHIF approved hospitals. According to NHIF, members admitted under contract Category B (private and mission) hospitals will enjoy full and comprehensive cover but where surgery is required, the contributor may be required to co-pay.

      I hope that answers your question Kip. I wish your patient a full and quick recovery.

    2. Hi Modern mom,I applied for my NHIF june last year and upto now havent received my card.My question is,can i use the nhif number i was given incase am in need of any medical service?

    3. Jac, Have you been making your monthly contributions? If yes, then you can use that number to access services.

  36. I work as an accountant for a company in Nairobi CBD. The previous accountant had been submitting NHIF payments for the employees via online submission. The problem is that some of the employees names were not matched with their ID numbers’ (keep in mind that the correct names were used except that the IDs did not match some of the names) as a result; some who had contributed did not have their records updated. How can i proceed with this matter to ensure that their NHIF statements are updated with the amounts deducted them?

  38. When does one start enjoying nhif benefits after registration.?

    1. I just confirmed that it takes 60 days for the informal members and 30 days for the formal members

  39. Modern Mom. I want to pay via mpesa. is the mpesa system effective? will it reflect immediately after submitting or how long will it take?

    1. Yes it is effective. Mpesa transactions normally take between 0 and 48 hrs to reflect.

    1. You are supposed to make monthly contributions before the 9th of every month is you are an informal member. For formal members, your employer deducts and contributes for you and you do not need to pay more.

    Hi Modern Mom.Iam Eric, I have not been consistent with my monthly payments. I was very keen on payments between 2009 and 2012, then I tried for a few months later on. Now, I have read your comments regarding those who have not been paying consistently. If I start from now what will happen to the amount that I had paid earlier.Thanks

    1. If you start paying now, you will be able to start using your card in 60 days like normal.

      About what happens to your previous contributions, remember that this is an insurance kitty. You are treated when you get sick for free. If you are fortunate enough not to fall sick, your funds are used on someone else who's not as lucky.

      I hope I've answered your question to your satisfaction.

    Dear Modern, I checked my NHIF contributions at the Westlands Branch and for the past 5months its nil yet my employer claims to have been paying and the business is almost collapsing so I need to make sure all is up. Will I be penalized for that yet am not a voluntary contributor?What step should I take before its too late?

    1. In your case the employer is the one who's supposed to pay the penalties.

      The only issue is that if he's not been paying then you'll not be able to receive NHIF services in case you get sick.

      I suggest you call one of the numbers in the post above to contact NHIF directly and they'll advice you on the way forward. Your call will be toll-free.

    Hi Modern Mum I changed my employment status to informal employment last month I haven't notified nhif but I am due for delivery in Oct do I have to go notify them? 2 Can I make advance payment from for say 4months?

    1. For some reason I'm not so confident answering your question but I'd say you just need to start making the 500 monthly contributions. And yes, you can pay every month or you can pay for a few months at a time.

  63. himodern… i am self employed and have not paid my contributions for the last two month…i have paid ksh 1500 today on 15 th June ….are there some arrears i have not paid?how will the 1500 be distributed…

    1. For the two months, you needed to pay 750 a month which comes to 1,500. The only part I don't understand is whether when you said two months, this month is included. The reason I ask this is because at date 15, we're already past the 9th day deadline.

  70. Hey modern mom gud morng,is it a must that you have to choose one hospital during the registration or you can go to any hospital for medical once you have Nhif card.

    1. Though you can go to any for inpatient, you need to choose one for outpatient.

  71. after paying penalty for 13 month late contribution after how long can get nhif services

    1. You should get the services immediately but you need to pay the penalties and all the back payments.

      If there's no emergency,I'd suggest you start paying now and access the services in 60 days. But seeing that it's already past 9th, you're already late for last month.

  72. What happens when you have not paid by 9th, is there any penalty? Is there any way you can be reminding me before the time is due?

    1. If your employer misses the deadline, he pays twice the principal. For the informal contributors, you pay the principal plus 50% of the principle. In other words, if you are to pay on, let's say 12th, instead of paying the normal Ksh. 500 you pay Ksh.750

      For the reminder, you can always set a monthly alarm on your phone.

When I went to register for NHIF, since it was a requirement for the internship to be processed, I was advised by an employee of nhif to select the self-employed section since the employment was only for 3 months.

    1. Ideal place to check is on your payslip. It's listed under deductions. However, to authenticate that the deductions have been submitted, simplest app that works for me is Jambo Pay. Try it and hope you find it worth.
