ANONYMOUS: Good day, can you help us intervene in retirees’ affairs with Premium Pension. Their desk officers seem not to be updated with the new regulations on retirement benefits. I was told the regulations haven’t been sent to them from PENCOM. They said they are yet to be given the go-ahead to verify 2022 retirees. They are also not advising the retirees on current documents to present as specified in the new regulation. Does it mean 2022 retirees cannot do verification?
PENCOM: Please visit your PFA to carry out verification. The exercise commenced in June 2022. The revised regulation on retirement and terminal benefits is available on www.pencom.gov.ng
ANATE: Good day, my name is Anate, I requested for 25 per cent of my pension benefit from IEI-Anchor Pension. I and my employer have submitted all needed document and information to them since May 2022. Their reason for the delay is that they needed approval from PENCOM to deduct the excess payment from my account before I can be paid. Please I need your kind support to facilitate the process because it is taking too long. Thank you
PENCOM: Your application is currently being processed
