Ministry of Public Service has embarked on cleanup of the active payroll as well as the pension payroll. As a result all employees on the payroll were subjected to a compulsory biometric validation and matching of the information with NIRA database. Unvalidated employees were consequently deactivated from payroll and presented to the Inspectorate of Government for investigation.
The Ministry would like therefore to inform all Traditional and Teaching service retirees/ pensioners who did not turn up for validation EITHER during the country wide validation exercise by the Ministry of Public Service from 29th Febuary to 20th April , 2017 OR at the Ministry of Public Service Headquarters to date as follows;
A team from the Ministry and other Government Agencies will be carrying out a final countrywide verification/validation of pensioners at various District Local Government Headquarters from 17th June- 14th July , 2019
The validation exercise targets only un validated Traditional and Teaching Service pensioners/claimants. Therefore pensioner/ claimants who were validated and have validation slips should not come for this exercise.
UPDF Veterans and claimants should also not report for the validation exercise since their validation will be handled by the Ministry of Defense and Veteran Affairs
The validation dates for each Local Government will be communicated through the Local Radio fm stations and displayed at the district notice boards for each local Government Headquarters.
The validation shall be done through the payroll ( Integrated Personnel and Payroll System)and National database ( National Identification and Registration Authority-NIRA) interface . Unvalidated pensioners and claimants should therefore appear for the scheduled validation exercise with the following requirements;
Introduction latter signed by the Permanent Secretary or Chief Administrative Officer or Town Clerk of a municipal council
valid (original) National Identity card
Death certificate ( Only in case of a claimant of a deceased estate)
Original letter of Administration and a Photocopy ( Only in case of a claimant of deceased estate)
Claimants of Estates of a deceased employee will in addition to the letters of administration and death certificate have to come with their own National Identity Card and introduction letter.
