PenCom to workers, retirees: provide NINs, BVN to PFAs
The National Pension Commission (PenCom) has advised all Retirement Savings Account (RSA) holders and retirees to approach their Pension Fund Administrators (PFAs) to provide their National Identity Numbers (NINs) and Bank Verification Numbers (BVN), as well and other mandatory biodata information. This is inline with Federal Government's directive that mandate every Nigerian to have a NIN. Acting Director-General, PenCom, Mrs. Aisha Dahir Umar gave the directive in a statement yesterday. The Federal Government has made it mandatory that every Nigerian must have NIN. To achieve this, all data generating organisations have been directed to harmonise their data bases with the National Identity System in Nigeria. "To enable the pension industry comply, PenCom has directed all PFAs to update the record of their clients. Consequently, all RSA holders both active and retired, are hereby advised to approach their PFAs to provide their NINs and BVNs, as well as other mandatory biodata information".
