The National Pension Commission (PenCom) appealed to all Retirement Savings Account (RSA) holders to visit any branch of their Pension Fund Administrators (PFAs) to participate in the ongoing Data Recapture Exercise (DRE).

The exercise is for both active contributors and retirees whose data have not been recaptured.

Oriental News Nigeria reports that the DRE is in compliance with the directive of the Federal Government that all data generating organisations should harmonise their databases with the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) and also consistent with the need to have a credible database of all RSA holders in Nigeria.

The Commissioner, expects all active contributors to visit their PFAs and provide their Staff Identity Card or the National Driver’s License; or Permanent Voter’s Card and or the International Passport (mandatory for non-Nigerians).
They are equally expected to provide Enrollment Slip issued by NIMC, Birth Certificate or Sworn Affidavit of Age Declaration, to complete the data recapture.
For retirees, who are either on programmed withdrawal or annuity, they are expected to present their National Driver’s License or Permanent Voter’s Card; or International Passport (mandatory for non-Nigerians), Enrollment Slip issued by NIMC, Letter of Retirement issued by the employer to the retiree.

Also, all RSA holders, who have had a name change (either their surnames or first names or both after registration), they should present the following documents to their PFAs, a Marriage Certificate (only applicable in the case of marriage), Newspaper publication for change of name, Sworn affidavit and Confirmation letter for change of name from employer (if still in employment)
PenCom stated that “All PFAs have been directed by PenCom to issue Acknowledgement Slips to RSA holders who submit complete documents for their data recapture. The RSA holders will be notified of the status of their data recapture (successful or not successful) within five working days of submission of documents. ”

For the purpose of the exercise, two agents, Payone Solution Systems Limited and Afritech Multi Concept Limited, have been engaged by PFAs to carry out the DRE consistent with PenCom’s approval.

The agents are authorised to establish data recapture centres and RSA holders are allowed to have their data recaptured at such centres by the agents (if they are unable to visit the offices of their PFAs.
