The Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) effective on Monday 28th June 2021 deployed systems to allow members of the scheme to merge their SSNIT Number and the Ghana Card (personal ID numbers on their Ghana cards).
The merger will provide convenience and comfort for members as they will only use one Ghana card, the Ghana Card, for all transactions with the Trust.
This is in compliance with the directives from the National Pension Regulatory Authority (NPRA) and Regulation 7(1) of the National Identity Register Regulation,2012, L.I. 2111, which requires the use of Ghana card as identification for “transactions pertaining to individuals in respect of pensions”.
All employers will be required to use NIA numbers of their workers to process Contribution Report and make payments. Voluntary contributors will also have to pay their contributions using their NIA numbers.
