“We are in the digital age and in fact even with COVID-19 coming on, we need to be more electronic in the way we discharge our duties. So, a lot of people have been calling for the SSNIT app so that they can transact business on their mobile phone and as I said, I want this (mobile phone) to be your closest and your nearest SSNIT branch.”
He added that plans are far advanced to launch the app by June this year.
“We are planning to deploy that app within the first half of this year. And that would allow members to be able to look at their statements, it will allow them request clearance certificates without coming to our offices, it will allow them to pay SSNIT from their mobile phones and will also be able to send payments through mobile money and also even disburse some pension payments through various electronic platforms”.
The management of SSNIT made the presentation of the brand-new pickup at a short ceremony held at the SSNIT Pension House in Accra.
The presentation was in response to an earlier request by the NPA for the Trust to assist in addressing their transportation challenges.
