The National Pension Commission (PenCom) has provided an update on the Implementation of Minimum Pension Guarantee (MPG) under the Contributory Pension Scheme (CPS) in its 2021 Annual Report for the pension industry.
PenCom disclosed that it has now determined the financial implication and other modalities for the successful implementation of the Pension Protection Fund (PPF). PenCom said the determination of the financial implication and other modalities are very important because they are preparatory to concluding the requisite Framework and Guidelines for the eventual implementation of the Minimum Pension Guarantee (MPG).
In the meantime, PenCom and Licensed Pension Fund Operators (LPFOs) have commenced setting aside the PPF Levy and Pension Fund Administrators (PFAs) had since been directed to continue to pay monthly pension to retirees whose Retirement Savings Accounts (RSAs) were already depleted due to payment of monthly/quarterly pension, from the PFA’s portion of the MPG Levy which had already been set aside, prior to the implementation of the MPG.
Minimum Pension has been in the Pension Reform Act since inception of the Contributory Pension Scheme in 2004 and its implementation has been expected for ages, we hope it will be fully implemented soonest.
Section 84 of Pension Reform Act 2014, “All Retirement Savings Account holders who have contributed to a licensed Pension Fund Administrator for a number of years to be specified by the Commission shall be entitled to a guaranteed minimum pension as may be specified from time to time by the Commission.”
