The National Pension Commission (PenCom) has stated that it is committed to ensuring that all Contributory Pension Scheme (CPS) retirees are fully recovered and individually identifiable on the database, allowing only bona fide Retirement Saving Account (RSA) holders to access their contributions.

Mrs. Grace Usoro, head of PenCom’s National Data Bank Management Department, revealed that the data recapture exercise for government agencies was still important to the Commission, and that it would continue until “the last contributor who registered before the cut-off date of July 2019 has been fully recaptured.”

She noted that the initiative, which is in its pilot phase, intended to enable the agents to collect contributors who enrolled under the CPS before July 2019. She spoke immediately after an inspection of one of Payone Solutions Systems’ data recapture centres in Abuja.

She noted that at the time, the Commission was able to implement an upgraded registration system with built-in controls and standards that fulfilled the National Identity Management Company’s (NIMC) minimal levels for individuals registered under the CPS.

The change meant that “contributors who enrolled before July 2019 did not achieve this minimum requirement,” according to Usoro.

“As a result, the data recapture effort has been implemented to allow those donors to bring their records up to date,” she explained.

Commissioner Technical Department, PenCom, Mr. Anyim Nyerere, also commented on the development, clarifying that the purpose of the exercise, which would be fully escalated by January, was to ensure that all CPS contributors have up-to-date information with the commission as well as the Pension Fund Administrators (PFAs).

He said the PFAs had agreed to appoint two agents who have been allowed by the commission to begin data recapturing, which is scheduled to continue roughly a year, in order to speed up the scheme’s data recapturing and provide contributors the opportunity to update their records.

The data collecting agents were “commissioned to perform this exercise on behalf of the PFAs,” he explained.

  1. Undeniably consider that which you said. Your favourite justification seemed to be at the net the easiest factor to consider of. I say to you, I definitely get irked at the same time as other folks think about issues that they plainly don’t understand about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest as smartly as outlined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thank you

  2. How many times will PENCOM do data recapture within a space of three years?
    PENCOM has enough data of contributor’s. The funds PENCOM is using for data recapture could be used to offset some pension liabilities PENCOM should stop disturbing contributor’s with unending data recapture.
