The National Pension Commission, PenCom, says it has concluded plans to begin verification of retirees/prospective retirees of Federal Government Ministries, Departments and Agencies, MDAs.
To this end, PenCom said it would begin online verification and enrolment for the retirees/prospective retirees of Federal Government Treasury-Funded MDAs on June 20.
The Head, Corporate Communications of PenCom, Abdulqadir Dahiru, said this on Thursday in Abuja while speaking with newsmen.
According to him, those who are eligible for the verification and enrolment are employees of MDAs scheduled to retire in 2022.
He said that employees who missed the enrolment in previous years are required to visit their Pension Fund Administrators, PFAs, and undergo the data recapture.
Mr Dahiru said that all retirees/prospective retirees were required to visit their PFAs and undergo the data recapture exercise.
According to him, retirees/prospective retirees should provide their personal details including their National Identity Number, NIN.
He said that the retirees/prospective retirees who had undergone the data recapture exercise earlier were not required to repeat it.
“The enrolment options are self-assisted, retirees/prospective retirees are required to visit PenCom’s website (www.pencom.com.ng) and upload their employment details.
“They are also to scan 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 and pension desk officer/PFA.
“Retirees/prospective retirees who are unable to complete the online registration for any reason could approach the pension desk officer of their respective MDAs or visit their PFAs for assistance,’’ he said.
He said that the verification and enrolment must be completed on or before Aug. 31.
