Mr Festus Darko-Preko the Branch Manager of the Social Security National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) in Bawku, has called on the public to cooperate with SSNIT in the ongoing biometric registration exercise.

He said this at a day’s sensitization forum organized by the Trust at Bawku to introduce the new SSNIT biometric registration to stakeholders and educate the general public on how it would work.

Mr Darko-Preko with the biometric registration all SSNIT contributors’ bio-data would be captured for the processing of pension claims since it had become a challenge for most pensioner s to access their claims in time after retirement.

He said all SSNIT contributors and pensioners would undergo the biometric registration and would require capturing of finger prints, photographs and their signatures after which a biometric smart card will be issued to them.

Mr Darko-Preko stated that the Trust would arrange a biometric registration date with employers and SSNIT members would have to contact their employers for a scheduled date for the registration.

He said the registration would be organized in four phases in which phase one will require members who are 54 years and above and all pensioners, phase two would require members with 50 to 53 years and above while phase three would require members who are 50 years and below and the final phase will be for students and all others.

Mr Darko-Preko said as part of the new business process, all employers would be issued with new registration numbers and these would be used in all transactions with SSNIT.
