The National Pension Commission (PenCom) has announced that online verification and enrolment exercise for 2021 retirees and prospective retirees of federal government treasury-funded Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) will commence on September 1, 2021.

In a statement it released Monday, PenCom said it has developed an online application which automates the Annual Pre-Retirement Verification and Enrolment Exercise for retirees and prospective retirees of federal government’s treasury-funded MDAs.

Those eligible for the scheduled exercise, according to the statement, include employees of federal government’s treasury-funded MDAs who retired between January and August 2021, those who are due to retire from September 2021 and those who missed the enrolment exercises in previous years.

PenCom said there are two enrolment options, which will be available for the exercise: self-assisted retirees/prospective retirees and Pension Desk Officer (PDO)/Pension Fund Administrator (PFA)-assisted retirees/prospective retirees’ options.

The self-assisted retirees/prospective retirees for the year 2021 are required to visit PenCom’s website to initiate the online enrolment process while PDO/PFA-assisted retirees/prospective retirees who are unable to complete the online registration for any reason could approach the PDO of their respective MDAs or visit their PFA for assistance.

For the self-assisted option, the statement explained that “this is done 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 physical verification and enrolment.

“The step-by-step procedure for the online enrolment would be hosted on the PenCom website.”

The commission explained that verification and enrolment by all concerned must be completed with their respective PFAs by October 29, 2021.
