The National Pension Commission (PenCom) has announced the commencement of the 2023 online verification and enrollment exercise for retirees/prospective retirees of the federal government treasury-funded ministries, departments, and agencies (MDAs).
In a statement issued on Thursday, the commission said the exercise will begin on October 17, 2022.
It said those eligible for the 2023 verification and enrolment exercise are employees of the federal government treasury-funded MDAs scheduled to retire in 2023 and employees of the federal government treasury-funded MDAs who missed the enrollment exercises in previous years.
According to PenCom, the prerequisite for the exercise is, “prior to enrolment, all retirees/prospective retirees are required to visit their PFAs and undergo the data recapture exercise”.

“The data recapture exercise entails retirees/prospective retirees providing their retirement savings account (RSA) registration details, personal identification number (PIN) and their national identity number (NIN),” the commission said.
“Retirees/prospective retirees who had undergone the data recapture exercise earlier are not required to repeat it.”
Explaining the enrolment process, PenCom said self-assisted retirees/prospective retirees are required to visit PenCom‘s website (www.pencom.com.ng) and upload their employment details as well as scanned copies of required documents before proceeding to their respective PFAs for physical verification and enrollment.
It said the step-by-step procedure for the online enrollment is available on its website.
According to the commission, retirees/prospective retirees who are unable to complete the online registration for any reason should approach the pension desk officer of their respective MDAs or visit their PFAs for assistance.
It added that they must complete the verification and enrollment exercise on or before December 31, 2022.
