Contributory Pension Scheme Is Sound But Defined Benefits Scheme Is Being Reformed To Prevent Fraud Defined Benefits Scheme:

The Pensions Reform Act (2007) establishes a pension department known as Pensions Transitional Arrangement Department (PTAD) to oversee the management of pensions under the Defined Benefits Scheme for pensioners not transiting to the Contributory Pensions Scheme

Following Mr. President’s directive to ensure strict compliance with the provisions of the Pensions Reform Act (2007), the CME/HMF inaugurated an Inter-Ministerial Committee in August 2012 headed by the Director-General Pensions Commission (PenCom) to carry out Mr. President’s instruction

The Inter-Ministerial task was structured into two phases: o Phase One: Design the governance and operating framework for the PTAD o Phase Two: Data validation and authentication of the existing pensioners database and the development of an authentic database

Phase one completed and Phase Two is underway

Result: All Defined Benefit Pension Systems for Civil Service, Police, Prisons, Immigration, Customs etc. will be managed in one department reporting to Ministry of Finance with direct payment to beneficiaries based on biometrics
