SSNIT cleans pensioners’ payroll of 6,339 ‘ghost’ names


The Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) has said it has cleaned the pensioners’ payroll of 6,339 ‘ghost’ pensioners which saved the nation GH¢43 million as of April, 2019.

This formed part of an exercise to uncover fictitious deals in the operations of the scheme over the years.

The Director-General of SSNIT, Dr John Ofori-Tenkorang, made this known at a SSNIT/Trades Union Congress (TUC) educational forum in Cape Coast last Thursday.

The programme was part of a nation-wide forum aimed at promoting knowledge on the scheme, empowering organised labour as peer educators on the scheme, as well as demystifying some of the issues surrounding benefits computation and compliance enforcement.
