To ensure 2021 retirees and other prospects in the Ministries, Departments, and Agencies (MDAs) complete the online enrolment process, the National Pension Commission (PenCom) has extended the online verification from October 31 to December 31, 2021.
The Head, Corporate Communications, PenCom, Peter Aghahowa, at the weekend, disclosed that the commission had developed an online application that automated the yearly pre-retirement verification and enrolment exercise for retirees/prospective retirees of MDAs.
Aghahowa said that the online enrolment application went live on September 1 and that retirees and prospective retirees were given a deadline at the end of October to conclude the process.
He said that only employees of federal government-fund MDAs are eligible to participate in the 2021 online verification and enrollment exercise.
He said the exercise involved “employees who retired from January to October 2021, employees who are due to retire from November to December 2021, and retirees that missed the previous enrolment exercises from 2007 to 2019.
“The affected retirees/prospective retirees are required to visit PenCom’s website http://www.pencom.gov.ng to initiate the online enrolment process by registering and capturing their employment details. Also, upload scanned copies of the required documents before proceeding to their respective Pension Fund Administrator (PFA) for the physical verification and enrolment.”
