Sierra Leone News : NASSIT to Open Two New Offices in Freetown
Jul 11, 2014, 17:10
By all indications so far, the new Management of NASSIT, headed by its astute Acting Director General, Mr. Joseph Sedu Mans Jr, is very much on course to deliver on its statutory responsibilities to the people of Sierra Leone. For in the recent past, the new Management has embarked on series of proactive measures that are succeeding in restoring the hitherto diminishing public confidence and bringing smiles to the faces of its contributors. These measures have included the introduction of a biometric pension payment system – an electronic system that minimizes identity fraud while facilitating easy processing and payment of benefits; the fast-tracking of payment of over 400 long-outstanding benefit claim files – thanks to special arrangements with the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development; and the collaboration with the no-nonsense Parliamentary Sub-Committee on Labour and Social Security to recover billions of leones from a good number of public and private sector institutions (including District and City councils) that had been in default of payment of lawful NASSIT contributions on behalf of their employees.
