The National Pension Commission (PenCom) has extended the online verification and enrollment exercise for 2021 retirees, and prospective retirees of the Federal Government Treasury Funded Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs).
The Head, Corporate Communications of PenCom, Mr Peter Aghahowa, made the disclosure in a statement made available to newsmen on Friday in Abuja.
He said that PenCom had developed an online application that automated the Annual Pre-Retirement Verification and Enrolment Exercise for retirees/prospective retirees of Treasury- Funded Federal Government MDAs.
Aghahowa said that the online enrolment application went live on Sept. 1, and retirees and prospective retirees were given a deadline of Oct. 29, to conclude the enrolment process.
He said that only employees of Federal Government Treasury-Funded 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 enrollment exercises from 2007 to 2019.”
He said that in the “Self-Assisted Registration”:
“The affected retirees/prospective retirees are required to visit PenCom’s website www.pencom.gov.ng to initiate the online enrollment 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 enrollment.”
He said that in the Pension Desk Officer (PDO) PFA-Assisted Registration, retirees, prospective retirees unable to complete their online registration could approach the PDOs of their respective MDAs or visit their PFAs for assistance.
