The Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate (PTAD) has paid benefits and entitlements to over 500 Next-Of-Kin (NOKs) of deceased Parastatals Pensioners under the Universities and Colleges of Education.

A statement signed by the Head Corporate Communications, Theodora Amechi, said the next-of-kins went through a verification process.

The validation exercise took place across the six geo-political zones and data of the family members were also updated.

The statement said "This follows a validation exercise which took place in the six (6) geo-political zones of the Federal Republic of Nigeria recently.

"During the validation exercise, PTAD updated the data of NOKs previously verified by the National Pension Commission (PenCom) between 2008 and 2012 during the Parastatals Pensioners Verification Exercise (PPVE) Phase 1."

"This payment is in fulfillment of the promise by PTAD management that all NOKs will be paid their entitlements. Payments have been made to NOKs of the various agencies confirmed in letters signed by the CEOs of these institutions or their immediate delegates.

"NOKs are hereby encouraged to contact their pension desk officers to ensure that PTAD’s letter requesting confirmation of their identities is appropriately and expeditiously responded to.

"PTAD is working hard to ensure all qualified NOKs are paid their due entitlements," the statement added.

Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate (PTAD) was established to address the numerous pensioners’ complaints that bother on issues such as non-payment of monthly pension, short payment of pension and gratuity, removal of name on pension payment voucher, non-payment of harmonized pension arrears and irregular payments.
