Disregard reports; there is no locked-up pension balance to be recovered – SSNIT
The Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) is advising the public, particularly pensioners to disregard calls by some unscrupulous persons that they could help them claim their benefit from the trust.
In a statement, the Trust, said management of SSNIT wishes to inform the public to disregard such calls as there is no “locked up pension balance to be collected”.
It explained that the trust has not engaged or commissioned any individual or body to assist pensioners to claim any benefit from SSNIT.
It cautioned the public not to engage any individual or body purporting to act on behalf of the trust in this regard.
“We encourage the public especially pensioners to report such persons to the nearest police station or SSNIT Office”
The trust further stated that the processing of pension benefits is free.
