You will live most of your life working until you retire. In all the years you work, making certain decisions based on investments can be very key to how comfortable you will live after retirement. Aside the personal assets, there is a mandatory provision in the law that ensures that employers make contributions on your behalf that will accumulate over the years you work.
The Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) comes in. SSNIT’s primary responsibility is to replace part of the lost income of workers in Ghana due to Old Age, Invalidity and permanent migration of an expatriate contributor from Ghana.
As an employee, your business is to meet deadlines and ensure that you play your role in growing the company where you work effectively. Combining that with your duties as a member/head of a family, member of a society/community and other groups is already stressful.
So you may want all of your hard work to be crowned up with a successful pension, but the process can be frustrating, especially when you frequently visit the SSNIT office to do such a simple thing as view the state of the account.
After many years of working, you are expected to chill at a place of your choice and have few worries about your grandchildren playing around you. During your work days, it was never your dream to join long queues to view your pension payment history and initiate survivor benefit applications.
If you are in any of these categories, don’t worry. Help is here!
In a drive to provide comfort for customers, SSNIT has introduced the new SSNIT Portal. It is a “self-service” system that allows you to gain access to all services offered by SSNIT.
You don’t need to go through the hassle of staying in long queues, reviewing various documents to stay updated with your pension information and making payments.
The portal will allow you to access your employees’ financial statements of your employees; pensioner payment history, and survivor benefits application initiation.
This initiative offers a faster, simpler and a convenient way of transacting business online with employees, pensioners, employers and the general public without being physically present.
