The Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate (PTAD) has announced today that its flagship online verification portal will finally go live across the country from April 2023.

In a press release on Friday 24th March, 2023 and sighted by PensionTalk, the pension directorate restates its commitment to lessening the burden of its pensioners when it comes to pension matters as it has made it easy for them to do their verification using their smartphones and in the comfort of their homes.
Read the press release below:
The Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate (PTAD) will on Friday, 14th April, 2023 unveil the I Am Alive Confirmation solution, an online platform for Pensioners to periodically confirm their aliveness so that they can continue to receive monthly pension.
This solution has been tested by PTAD and is ready to be fully deployed to take away the stress of continuous field verifications for Defined Benefit Scheme (DBS) Pensioners who are already on PTAD’s payroll.
The I Am Alive confirmation is designed to confirm the aliveness of Pensioners from the comfort of their homes or neighbourhoods using a smartphone or computer system. Pensioners do not need to embark on stressful journeys for physical verification again.
Pensioners are required to log on to the PTAD website www.ptad.gov.ng in a well-lit environment and begin the process to confirm their aliveness.
The I Am Alive confirmation is very simple, safe and easy to use. A pensioner can be assisted by a family member or friend to carry out the confirmation.
Relevant stakeholders have been invited to grace the official launch of the solution on 14th April, 2023 For more information call 09-4621708, 09-4621709, 09-4621710 Or visit www.ptad.gov.ng
