In an official announcement, the Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate (PTAD) has revealed its decisive steps to initiate the implementation of the back-end computation project for pensioners of Transport and Power Agencies. According to a statement from the Directorate, the backend project was set in motion to meticulously validate the comprehensive records of pensioners, which were captured during the nationwide field verification exercise conducted in 2019.

The primary objectives of this project are twofold. Firstly, it aims to recompute the monthly pensions of the retirees based on their individual career records, relevant salary structures, and the applicable increments pertaining to pensions. This endeavor seeks to ensure that the pensioners receive accurate and appropriate pension amounts reflective of their service and contributions.

Moreover, the backend project is also intended to address and rectify issues that have surfaced regarding overpayment and complaints of underpayment in the pension system. By addressing these discrepancies, PTAD aims to bring about fair and equitable disbursements to pensioners, alleviating any financial distress they might have experienced due to irregular pension payments.

Through the implementation of the backend computation project, PTAD demonstrates its commitment to improving the pension system and providing pensioners with a more transparent, accountable, and reliable process for receiving their well-deserved pensions. This undertaking is seen as a crucial step in honoring the dedication and service of retirees and ensuring their financial security in their post-work life.
