The National Pension Commission, PenCom, has concluded arrangements to facilitate verification and enrollment of potential retirees of Treasury Funded Ministries, Departments and Agencies, MDAs of the Federal Government via automated option.
PenCom, explained that those due to retire from service between January and December 2021, would not be able to be verified physically this year due to the Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19).
However, the Commission said it is putting an automated process in place that would ensure seamless conduct of the annual verification/enrolment exercise. This new process has two options for the prospective retirees, namely self-assisted or the Pension Fund Administrator (PFA) assisted option.
The self-assisted option entails a prospective retiree scanning original copies of all relevant documents required for the exercise and uploading these documents to the Enrolment web portal located on the Commission’s website (www.pencom.gov.ng). After carrying out this process, the retiree is required to visit his/her PFA for the verification and validation of the submitted documents.
If a prospective retiree chooses the PFA assisted option, he/she is required to initiate and conclude the Verification/Enrolment process by visiting his/her PFA to verify and validate all relevant original documents to enable the PFA upload these documents to the Commission’s Enrolment portal on behalf of the prospective retiree.
This exercise is scheduled to commence within the first quarter in 2021.
PenCom, promised to publish details in the national newspapers and on the Commission’s website on or before 31 March, 2021.
The Commission also assured prospective retirees and the public of its commitment to excellent service delivery
