Pension Census Ongoing

Saturday, February 25, 2017

The Pension Census started on Monday 20th February, 2017 and is going on well. By close of business Friday 24th February 6,056 pensioners had been validated. This number is expected to go up as the validation teams visit other Districts as scheduled.

All pensioners earning from the Public Service Pension Scheme are eligible for validation and are encouraged to go to the district headquarters nearest to their places of aboard regardless of where they retired from.  Those that are yet to access the pension payroll are advised to wait until they are accessed and an arrangement will be made by Government to enable them get validated.  This exercise is targeting those that served in the Teaching Service, the Traditional Civil Service (including Police & Prison) and the Army/UPDF/Veterans. The claimants/managers of the Estates of the deceased former civil servants, widows and claimants of fallen officers and men of the army are also targeted since they are beneficiaries of the Public Service Pension Scheme.

Pensioners that are ill will be accessed at their residences on the guidance of the District Officials as has been the case in the 1st week of the exercise. The Ministry thanks the Pensioners that have participated in the exercise. District Local Leaderships are appreciated for the help rendered during this exercise so far.  

This exercise continues as scheduled and the following Districts will be visited dirung the week 27th February - 3rd March 2017.
