PenCOM begins verification of 2023 prospective retirees
The National Pension Commission (PenCom), says it will begin online verification and enrolment of retirees and prospective retirees of Federal Government Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) on Oct. 17.
Its spokesman, Mr Abdulqadir Dahiru, stated in Abuja on Thursday that those eligible for the verification and enrolment are employees of MDAs scheduled to retire in 2023.
“Employees of Federal Government Treasury-Funded MDAs scheduled to retire in 2023; employees of Federal Government Treasury-funded MDAs who missed the enrolment exercises in previous years are qualified for the exercise.
“All retirees and prospective retirees are required to visit their Pension Funds Administrators (PFAs) to undergo the data recapture exercise,’’ he stated.
He explained that the data recapture required that those involved provide their Retirement Savings Account (RSA) registration details, Personal Identification Number (PIN) and their National Identity Number (NIN). READ:Lagos Govt. Pays 291 Retirees N1.3bn Pension Benefits
He added that retirees and prospective retirees who had undergone the data recapture exercise earlier were not required to repeat it.
“Self-assisted retirees and prospective retirees are required to visit PenCom’s website (www.pencom.com.ng) and upload their employment details.
“They are also required to upload scanned copies of required documents before proceeding to their respective PFAs for physical verification and enrolment.
“The step-by-step procedure for the online enrolment is hosted on the PenCom website.
“Pension Desk Officer and PFA-assisted retirees and prospective retirees who are unable to complete the online registration for any reason should approach the pension desk officer of their respective MDAs or visit their PFAs for assistance,’’ Dahiru advised.
He stated also that the verification and enrolment must be completed on or before Dec. 31.
