The National Pension Commission (PenCom) has concluded plans to commence next month(August) the pilot run of its online pre-retirement verification and enrolment exercise for retirees in government ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs).
Making this known at the just concluded 2021 Journalist Seminar in Lagos, the Commission said it recently developed an online application which has the capability to register, verify and enrol prospective retirees of treasury-funded federal government MDAs for the purpose of computing their accrued pension rights and budgetary allocation.
“As a prelude to the formal deployment of the online Enrolment Application, PenCom would commence a Pilot Run of the exercise from 2nd to 20th August 2021 with selected MDAs in the six Geo-Political Zones and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) in order to test-run the application with real-time data,” it said.
“Accordingly, the online enrolment application would be hosted on PenCom website: www.pension.gov.ng. “The application would GO-LIVE after the conclusion of the pilot run on a date to be announced by PenCom in due course.”
PenCom said prospective retirees are required to undergo the data recapturing exercise with their respective pension fund administrators (PFAs) as it is a prerequisite for the online enrolment.
