The Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate (PTAD), has assured pensioners of the payment of 33% arrears and the payment of benefits to Next of Kin (NOKs) of deceased pensioners.

This assurance came during a meeting between the management of PTAD and representatives of the National Union of Pensioners (NUP), National Association of Retired Paramilitary Officers (NARPO), Association of Retired Police Officers of Nigeria (ARPON) and the Association of Public Service Retirees that took place on Wednesday.

PTAD spokesperson Theodora Ameachi in a statement made available to Daily Trust said the "details of the 33% arrears payment are to be agreed with the various pension groups before payment."

She reiterated that PTAD is working hard to resolve all complaints and other issues affecting their members, adding that “our doors are always open for the resolution of complaints and communication between PTAD and our pensioners and other stakeholders.”

The management reassured the unions’ representatives that the federal government recognizes its obligation to pensioners while apologizing for any delays pensioners may experience in the course of complaint resolution. She also stressed that it is a process they have to undergo for things to be done correctly to enable PTAD pay the right persons.
