The National Pension Commission has extended the online verification and enrolment exercise for the 2021 retirees/prospective retirees of federal government treasury-funded ministries, departments and agencies from October 29 to December 31.
The Commission gave the extension in a statement made available to THE WHISTLER.
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.
The online enrolment application went live on September 1, 2021 and Retirees and prospective Retirees were given a deadline of October 29, 2021 to conclude the enrolment process.
But in the statement issued on Friday, the Commission informed all Retirees and prospective Retirees that it has extended the timeline to December 31, 2021 in order to ensure that all eligible persons complete the enrolment process.
It listed those eligible to participate in the 2021 online verification and enrolment exercise to include 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 statement added, “The affected retirees/prospective retirees are required to visit PenCom’s website www.pencom.gov.ng to initiate the online enrolment process by registering and capturing their employment details as well as uploading scanned copies of the required documents before proceeding to their respective Pension Fund Administrator (PFA) for the physical verification and enrolment.
“Retirees/prospective retirees who are unable to complete the online registration could approach the PDOs of their respective MDAs or visit their PFAs for assistance.”
