PENCOM enrols retiring FG employees in Lagos, Ogun

The National Pension Commission (PenCom), on Monday commenced the verification and enrolment exercise of 3,000 employees of Federal Government Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) in Ogun and Lagos State.
Head, Corporate Communications Department of PenCom, Mr.
Peter Aghahowa, said the exercise was meant for employees due to retire between Jan.
and Dec., 2019 who had attained the age of 60 or 35 years in service.
He said others included in the exercise were employees of tertiary institutions who had served for 35 years or had attained 70 years of age.
“This physical enrolment also covers those who have already retired but are yet to be enrolled.
Aghahowa said the prospective retirees were also requested to come with evidence of registration with a Pension Fund Administrator (PFA) indicating Retirement Savings Accounts (RSA) Personal Identification Number (PIN).
This, he added, was to ensure a successful and hitch-free exercise.
The spokesman, however, advised employees to take part in the exercise as only employees enrolled would be issued with the Federal Government Retirement Bond.
The exercise in the South West is taking place between July 30, and Aug.
