The Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) has announced that it will delete the names of pensioners, aged 72 and above, who fail to complete or renew their Pensioner Certificates from 1st September, 2021.
SNNIT urged pensioners who are yet to complete their Pensioner Certificates to do so by 31st August 2021 to avoid any inconvenience.
SSNIT says that “presently, there are some 13,451 pensioners, 72 years and above, who receive monthly pension, but are yet to complete or renew their Pensioner Certificates. All such pensioners should visit the nearest SSNIT office to renew or complete their Pensioner Certificates.”
According to SSNIT, “this exercise will ensure that pensions are paid to the right persons.” Hence, “the accounts of such pensioners will only be reactivated when they renew their Pensioner Certificates.”
A part of the statement also urged pensioners visiting a SSNIT office for the Pensioner Certificate renewal to carry along their Ghana Cards to have their SSNIT and NIA numbers merged if they have not done so already.
