Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate (PTAD) – PensionNigeria

Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate (PTAD)

Pension Transitional Arrangements Directorate (PTAD) is responsible for payment of pension to existing retirees of the Federal Government that retired before July 2007 and are exempted from the Contributory Pension Scheme (CPS).

Section 42 of the PRA 2014 established the Pension Transitional Arrangements Directorate (PTAD) as part of the transitional arrangements for the public sector from the Defined Benefit Scheme. PTAD took over the functions of the various Pension Departments of the Public Service and is responsible for payment to existing retirees of the Federal Government that retired up to June, 2007 and thus exempted from the CPS.

The National Pension Commission (PenCom) is empowered by Section 48 of the Pension Reform Act 2014 to issue rules, regulations and directives to PTAD in order to ensure that retirees are being paid as and when due. PTAD shall cease to exist after the demise of the last pensioner entitled to pension under the Defined Benefit Scheme of the Public Service of the Federation.

PTAD is an agency of the Federal Government established in August 2013 in compliance with the provisions of Section 30 sub-section (2) (a) of the Pension Reform Act (PRA) of 2004 (amended in Section 42 of the PRA 2014) which stipulated the establishment of an independent pension department for the Public Service of the Federation.

  • The Civil Service Pension Department (CSPD)
  • The Police Pension Department (PPD)
  • The Customs, Immigration and Prisons Pension Department (CIPPD)
  • The Treasury Funded Parastatals Pension Department (PaPD)
  • The Pension Support Services Department (PSSD)
