Employees in full time employment in an organization registered and recognized as a member institution of the pension Scheme qualify for membership of the scheme. Parastatal organizations established by Acts of parliament form the bulk of the Pension Scheme.
However employees in the private sector whose employers so desire may opt for membership in the Pension Scheme.
Employees are required to complete prescribed registration forms submitting complete and accurate information about them. Particular attention should be paid to details regarding: name, date of birth, date employed/admitted into the scheme and annual salary, including fixed allowance. The complete application form must be supported by a birth certificate or national identification card and passport size photographs.
