Lack of vital information about social security and end of service benefits, is compelling most workers to make uninformed decisions on pension.

The National First Trustee of the Ghana Trade Union Congress (TUC) Mr. Santos Beyogle who made the observation in Tamale on Friday said the issue was a national problem that should be tackled by the union.

Mr. Beyogle was addressing the Northern Regional Women's Conference of the Public Services Worker Union of the TUC, where a number of the participants expressed misgivings about their Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) contributions and the problems they go through after guaranteeing loans for students.

He asked them to request for their social security statements annually from SSNIT and keep records of their pay slips as a point of reference to ratify anomalies in their contributions.

The Acting Northern Regional Secretary of the TUC, Alhaji Ahmed Adams said women's participation in the union dated back to the 1980's.

From 2005 to 2009 the Regional Women Union undertook a number of activities including deliberations on social security, the National Health Insurance Scheme, batik production and other business initiatives.

The conference elected new executives to steer affairs for the next four years.
