The Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate (PTAD) has formally launched the “I Am Alive” Confirmation (IAAC) solution for pensioners under the Defined Benefits Scheme (DBS).

Speaking at the official unveiling in Abuja over the weekend, the Executive Secretary of PTAD, Dr Chioma Ejikeme, said the digital solution now puts an end to manual verification of pensioners which has cost the government so much over the years.

Daily Trust reports that IAAC solution is an online application designed to enable pensioners under the DBS to easily confirm their livelihood from the comfort of their homes or neighbourhood, using either a smartphone or a computer system.

Briefing newsmen on the importance of the solution, Dr Ejikeme said, “Government funding of pensions will be accurately estimated as deceased pensioners are immediately removed from the payroll and funding for field verification will be completely eliminated.

Pensioners are no longer required to travel long distances with the attendant stress and inconvenience to attend verification exercises. The result of the “I Am Alive” Confirmation (IAAC) solution is received via SMS to the phone of the pensioner.”

She said, “The journey to test and provide this solution has taken PTAD over eighteen months. They have been challenging months that stretched us as an organisation, as we worked to ensure that our service ethos of “empathy” for our pensioners’ welfare is delivered.”
