The Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) will from 1st September, 2021, delete the names of pensioners, aged 72 and above, who fail to complete or renew their Pensioner Certificates.
The Trust is entreating pensioners who are yet to complete their Pensioner Certificates to do so by 30th August, 2021.
Presently, there are some 13,451 pensioners, who receive monthly pension, but are yet to complete or renew their Pensioner Certificates.
In a statement, SSNIT said such pensioners should visit the nearest SSNIT office to renew or complete their Pensioner Certificates.
Those with mobility challenges are to contact SSNIT to schedule a home visit for the completion or renewal of their Pensioner Certificates.
This exercise will ensure that pensions are paid to the right persons. Pensioners visiting a SSNIT office for the Pensioner Certificate renewal are strongly encouraged to carry along their Ghana Cards to have their SSNIT and NIA numbers merged if they have not done so already.
