The Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) has announced that from Wednesday, September 1, it will embark on an exercise to delete the names of more than 13,000 pensioners, aged 72 and above, from its payroll.
According to a statement issued by SSNIT, the affected persons had failed to complete or renew their pensioner certificates and explained that the exercise would ensure that pensions were paid to the right persons.
SSNIT added that the accounts of such pensioners would only be reactivated when they renewed their pensioner certificates.
“To avoid any inconvenience, the Trust is entreating pensioners who are yet to complete their Pensioner Certificates to do so by August 30, 2021.
It said presently, there were about 13,451 pensioners, 72 years and above, who receive monthly pensions, but were yet to complete or renew their pensioner certificates.
“All such pensioners should visit the nearest SSNIT office to renew or complete their Pensioner Certificates,” it said.
