PenCom has not been making it easy for stakeholders to analyze RSA Registrations because PenCom in recent times has only been releasing the total number of RSA registrations in its monthly reports without any breakdown, even in its Annual Report for 2019, no breakdown was given for RSA registrations. The last time PenCom released the breakdown was in its annual report for 2018.

We look forward to a time when the Regulator, National Pension Commission (PenCom) will release the monthly report for RSA Registrations per Fund, per Pension Fund Administrator (PFA) along with the breakdown based on Age and Gender. This will enable stakeholders and industry analyst measure performance based on RSA registrations per Fund, along age brackets, sector and gender.
