This thesis contributes to the theoretical analysis of the informal sector in the search and matching framework. Its aim is to understand the role of social security programs and informality under different assumptions and to identify the policies that the government should pursue in order to get an efficient level of informality. To this end explore different government policies and their impact on informality levels. The first chapter describes the search and matching equilibrium in an economy with an informal sector where workers are risk neutral and the government can observe when a worker is formal and informal.
