The Lagos State Government has again paid the sum of N1.8 Billion into the Retirement Savings Accounts (RSA) of 418 Retirees from the mainstream Civil Service, Local Governments, State Universal Basic Education and Teaching Service Commission for the month of March, 2020.
The Director-General, Lagos State Pension Commission, Mrs. Folashade Onanuga said the mode of distributing the Bond Certificates for March 2020 is different from the norm, in view of the order by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, to limit large gatherings in a bid to curb the spread of COVID-19 disease.
According to her, all Bond Certificates have been released to the Pension Fund Administrators who will invite beneficiaries in their tens for the exit meeting and grant access to their RSA for computation of their lump sum and monthly pension.
She also released phone numbers and e-mail addresses for all retirees and contributors in the Lagos State Public Service to channel any inquiry on pension matters during this period, while enjoining them to scan and send any document to the Agency through the email addresses: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com or the Retiree Portal: laspecportal.com.ng.
“In the alternative you can also call the following telephone numbers for inquiries and assistance: 09053962112, 09053962100 and 09053989987”, she added.
Mrs. Onanuga, however, urged all retirees to stay safe and observe all necessary precautions needed to stay free of the Coronavirus pandemic.
