Staff who retire between January-June 2020 to receive entitlements in advance - Pension director

20th Jan, 2020 | By Felix Durumbah | ||

In a novel move, staff members who will retire between January and June, 2020, are to receive their entitlements in advance. Such staff members are mostly those whose pensions are processed by Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA)'s Area Council Staff Pension Board (ACSPB). These include staff of Area Councils and Local Education Authorities (LEAs).

The cheery news was broken exclusively to Abuja Digest Weekly by Director, ACSPB, Dr. Nanzing Nden in an interview last week. He said the payment of such entitlement will kick off in the second quarter of this year and profusely thanked the authorities of FCTA led by the Minister, Malam Muhammad Musa Bello, the Minister of State, FCT, Dr. Ramatu Aliyu (who supervises his board), the Permanent Secretary, FCT, Sir Chinyeaka Ohaa for prioritizing pension matters.

Also, Dr. Nden revealed, the sum of N508 million has been earmarked for second batch payment of accrued rights benefits for a total of 133 retired and deceased persons, including death benefits. According to him, beneficiaries have started receiving their letters to access the benefits from their Pension Fund Administrators (PFAs).
