The National Pension Commission (PenCom) will commence online verification and enrolment exercise for retirees of federal government ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs) on June 20, 2022.
PenCom in a statement said the eligible groups for the exercise are first, employees of Federal Government MDAs scheduled to retire in 2022. Second, employees of Federal Government treasury-funded MDAs who missed the enrolment exercises in previous years.
Prior to enrolment, all retirees/prospective retirees are required to visit their PFAs and undergo the data recapture exercise, which entail providing their personal details including their National Identity Number (NIN). However, those who had undergone the data recapture exercise earlier are not required to repeat it.
The statement explained the enrolment options are self and pension desk officer/PFA assisted. The self-assisted retirees/prospective retirees are required to visit PenCom’s website (www.pencom.com.ng) and upload their employment details as well as scanned copies of required documents before proceeding to their respective PFAs for physical verification and enrolment.
The pension desk officer/PFA-assisted retirees/prospective retirees who are unable to complete the online registration for any reason could approach the pension desk officer of their respective MDAs or visit their PFAs for assistance. PenCom cleared that verification and enrolment by all concerned must be completed on or before 31 August, 2022
