The Nigeria Social Insurance Trust Fund (NSITF) has begun a nationwide training of its staffers to prepare them adequately ahead of take-off of its digital platform for registration of companies, claims processing and payment of compensation to victims of workplace injury.
This was disclosed by the management of the NSITF at a two-day workshop on Electronic Revenue Compliance, Claims and Compensation (ERC3) and change management which held at the American University, Yola, recently.
Managing director of NSITF, Adebayo Somefun said the ERC3 system was borne out of the management’s desire to digitalise all operations of the Fund on real time basis and in line with global world practices.
“Our mandate as an agency of government is to be proactive in providing social security and safety nets against deprivation and income insecurity in accordance with national and international laws and conventions as well as world best practices.
“Definitely when this is achieved, then NSITF’s vision to be the leading social security institution in Africa will be fulfilled with a model for other social security institutions on the continent to emulate,” the MD stated while calling on all staff of the Fund to dedicate themselves to the new system of operations and processes.
“With the deployment of the ERC3 software, employers can now register their companies in the Employees’ Compensation Scheme (ECS), make contributions promptly and print the Remita receipts on the go, while making online applications for claims in the event of a workplace injury,” he explained.
