National Pension Commission (PENCOM) has unveiled an online enrolment application in a bid to ensure easy and hitch free enrolment, verification and computation of benefits by retirees in the country.
The Commissioner, Technical Department, PenCom, Anyim Nyerere, who disclosed this at the opening of a two-day training for the Pension Desk Officers in Kano, said the application was developed for easy capturing.
Represented by the Head, Contributory and Bond Redemption Department of the Commission, Mr Saleem Abdurrahman, the Commissioner further stated that the new application will provide guidance accordingly, and help to compute retirees’ accurate retirement benefits.
“The application will also be hosted on the commission’s website and will enable prospective retirees log on to register their details,” he said.
He assured that the rationale behind the training was to expose the Pension Desk Officers to the newly developed online enrolment application procedures adding that the officers when trained, would guide the retirees on how to complete and ensure accuracy in the information to be submitted online.
