Beginning next week, the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) will distribute SSNIT Statements of Accounts (e-statements) to all Members under the Scheme.
Members are encouraged to have valid email addresses and mobile phone numbers, in order to keep track of their contributions.
Management of the Trust, intends to issue electronic statements on a quarterly basis to all Members with valid contact details. Director-General of SSNIT, Dr. John Ofori-Tenkorang, disclosed this during the official launch of this year’s Mobile Service Week held at Takoradi on Monday, which is being observed under the theme: Preparing for retirement, your role as a stakeholder.
“This makes us accountable and empowers you [contributors] to track and take control of your retirement planning process.”
“Once this is done, you can receive your annual statements and other important information about the SSNIT Scheme”, says Dr. Ofori-Tenkorang.
The Trust is urging all Members under the SSNIT Scheme to visit any of the Mobile Service points across the country to update their contact details and other key functions regarding contributions and retirement.
“That is why each year, we move out of our offices and come to your doorsteps to serve you, such as we are doing this week”, Dr. John Ofori-Tenkorang noted. This year’s SSNIT Mobile Service Week, started on Monday across all 16 regions of the country.
The SSNIT Mobile Service Week, is an annual event that allows SSNIT to pitch camp at various locations across the country to serve Members of the Scheme and the public.
Activities being undertaken during this year’s event include checking and printing of statements, retirement advisory services, submission and validation of contribution reports, resolution of compliance concerns, contribution collection, and update of nominees.
The event forms part of the Trust’s strategic efforts to have constant engagements with its Members and the public in general by focusing on member and client satisfaction.
