Only a week to the end of the Pension Census

Saturday, March 25, 2017

The pension census that started on 20th February 2017 comes to the end within a week. The exercise has been completed in all Districts except Masaka, Busia, Bukwo, Kween, Nebbi, Mbarara, Soroti, Kyankwanzi, Kiboga, Buliisa, and Kampala. By the 31st March 2017, all the Districts will have been covered except for Kampala which is scheduled to end on 5th April 2017.  To date, out of over 73,000 pensioners, 41,024 have been verified representing over 56% coverage of all the pensioners on the pensions payroll.

In the week ending 25th March, arrangements were made to validate members of the Public Service Commission and at the centre that was set up at the Farmers House on Tuesday 21st March 2017,  21 persons were validated.  More such arrangements are expected to be made the week begining 27th March 2017.  

On Monday 27th March 2017,  we expect to visit inmates in Luzira and Kigo Prisons.  Members of the public who have relatives in such facilities are requested to get in touch with the Ministry officials to make arrangements to have the inmates validated.  The indisposed in hospitals or at their homes will also be visited when prior arrangements are made with the caretakers to avoid interruption of pension payments for the existing pensioners that can not make it to the validation centres established.

There have been cases of pensioners not being able to find their names on the pensions register and this is attributed to the fact that some pensioners pay pensioners off the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Systems (IPPS).  This is an anormally and the affected votes have been advised to transfer all pensions records on to the IPPS for proper mangement and tracking of payments.  These cases will be validated after their records have accessed the pensions payroll on the IPPS.

For those that will not have been validated at the end of this exercise and are on payroll, payment of pension will be suspended on the assumption that they do not exist.

At the end of this exercise, a centre will be setup at the Ministry of Public Service and any other station that will be communicated for purposes of validating new retirees as has been the case for the active service payroll.
