Persons on SSNIT Pension must complete life certificates together with the Trust every a couple of years in place of half a year on attaining 72 years.
Mr Hanson Amoaku Senior Compliance Officer from the Trust gave the hint with the 20th anniversary celebration within the Ho District Council of SSNIT National Pensioners Association in Ho.
Mr Amoaku said the Trust was adopting a whole new operational system to “serve you better”.
He assured pensioners that there was not a ulterior motive behind the Trust’s biometric registration exercise, that’s one of several ways towards efficient service delivery.
The Trust, he was quoted saying, would carry on and explore ways at improving the relationship between it and pensioners.
“You inspire us to generate SSNIT a robust institution,” Mr Amoaku told the pensioners.
Mr Seth Seshie, National President of SSNIT National Pensioners Association, said the leadership on the Association was working at resolving some operational difficulties into the SSNIT Pensioners Medical Scheme, that has delayed for 5 years.
He explained that this Medical Scheme would supplement the National Insurance coverage Scheme in helping pensioners address their peculiar medical problems.
Togbe Kotoku XI, Chief of Kpenoe who chaired the launch, urged pensioners to discover different options at securing their collective self security because the traditional social home security system of the relatives system continues to be weakened after a while.
Meanwhile the Ho District Council in the Association is usually to construct a dentist’s office complex, Madam Victoria Adzowu, its Chairperson has hinted.
The edifice would contain offices, conference centre, restaurant, bar and hostel.
Madam Adzowu said the complex would offer opportunities for recreation, relaxation, exercise and socialization for members.
She therefore attracted the Lands Commission to expedite work on the allocation of land for any project.
From five members at its birth 2 decades ago, the branch featuring 1,000 members, Madam Adzowu said.
The Association helps its members to accumulate loans in the banks, provides death benefits and proposed medical scheme.
