'Re-register or risk not receiving NSSA pay out': Mupfumira

27 968 pensioners will likely not receive monthly payouts from the National Social Security Authority (NSSA) beginning next month if they fail to register under the new biometric system. NSSA has captured about 156 700 pensioners countrywide.

Social Welfare Minister Prisca Mupfumira said:

The biometric registration of current pensioners is ending on September 30. Any new contributors will, however, be allowed to register, but when it comes to payment of pension, only those vetted will benefit. We are encouraging all those genuine pensioners, who are yet to register, to visit our respective centres and register. From October 1, NSSA will increase pension payouts based on people who will be registered. NSSA had outreach programmes and teams that were moving around registering deserving beneficiaries. We want to move away from paying deceased people or non-existing people. There are about 27 968 people who are not registered and come the 30th of September, they will not receive any benefits if they are not registered biometrically. They might not be aware, ghosts or could have been double counted.
