Mr Anyim Nyerere, Commissioner, Technical Department of the Commission, made this known in a remark at the opening of a two-day training for the Pension Desk Officers in Kano.
Nyerere, represented by the Head, Contributory and Bond Redemption Department of the Commission, Mr Saleem Abdurrahman, said the application was developed for easy capture.
“The New application will provide guidance accordingly, and will help to compute retirees’ accurate retirement benefits.
“The application will also be hosted on the commission’s website and will enable prospective retirees log on to register their details,” he said.
