PenCom invites pensioners for recapture exercise by PFAs





In apparent bid to have hitch-free exercise, the leadership of National Pension Commission (PenCom) has expressed its pleasure to invite all Retirement Savings Account (RSA) holders to visit any branch of their Pension Fund Administrators (PFAs) to participate in the ongoing Data Recapture Exercise (DRE).

The exercise is for both active
contributors and retirees whose data have not been recaptured.

The DRE is in compliance with the directive of the Federal Government that all data generating organisations should harmonise their databases with the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC).

It is also consistent with the need to have a credible database of all RSA holders in Nigeria.

Consequently, all active contributors are hereby advised to visit their PFAs and provide the following documents to complete the data recapture:

Staff Identity Card or any one of the following:
• National Driver’s License; or
• Permanent Voter’s Card; or
• International Passport (mandatory for non-Nigerians).

ii. Enrollment Slip issued by NIMC.

iii. Birth Certificate or Sworn Affidavit of Age Declaration.

3. For retirees, who are either on programmed withdrawal or annuity, they are expected to present the following documents:
i. National Driver’s License or any one of the following:
• Permanent Voter’s Card; or
• International Passport (mandatory for non-Nigerians).

ii. Enrollment Slip issued by NIMC.

iii. Letter of Retirement issued by the employer to the retiree.

4. All RSA holders, who have had a name change (either their surnames or first names or both after registration), they should present the following documents to their PFAs:
i. Marriage Certificate (only applicable in the case of marriage).

ii. Newspaper publication for change of name.

iii. Sworn affidavit.

iv. Confirmation letter for change of name from employer (if still in employment).

5. All PFAs have been directed by PenCom to issue Acknowledgement Slips to RSA holders who submit complete documents for their data recapture.

The RSA holders will be notified of the status of their data recapture (successful or not successful) within five working
days of submission of documents.

The statement signed by the management, said that two agents, Payone Solution Systems Limited and Afritech Multi Concept Limited, have been engaged by PFAs to carry out the DRE
consistent with PenCom’s approval. The agents are authorised to establish data recapture centres. RSA holders are allowed, therefore, to have their data recaptured at such centres by the agents (if they are unable to visit the offices of their PFAs).

Furthermore, the apex regulatory agency said enquiries or complaints on the Data Recapture Exercise, please contact PenCom on the following telephone numbers: 09133711199, 094603930, 094603939 and 07066924512, or by e-mail:
