The National Pension Commission(PenCom) has finalised arrangements for the 2017 Pre-Retirement workshop targeted at staff of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) who are due to retire between January and December 2018.
The workshop, which is designed to educate the attendees on the modalities for accessing retirement benefits under the Contributory Pension Scheme (CPS) will hold between 28 June, 2017 and 14 July, 2017 at various centres within the six geo-political zones of the federation and the FCT, Abuja.
A statement from PenCom signed by head of communications, Mr. Emeka Onuora, and made available to Leadership, said it is the responsibility of the Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) to sponsor their prospective retirees to the workshop. Therefore, he urged all MDAs to make necessary arrangements for logistics and other incidentals to ensure full attendance and participation of their intending retirees at the Workshop. It is important to note that the workshop is not for people who have already retired, he said.
