New automated distribution system for old age pension in 2017


The Ministry of Social Protection says it is moving to introduce an automated distribution system for Old Age Pension by January 2017 to ensure “greater efficiency, accountability and transparency.”


The Ministry is requesting that all Old Age Pensioners who do not have the nine-digit identification cards issued in the last Registration Cycle by the Guyana Elections Commission to upgrade their National Identification Cards since this will be required to collect their Old Age Pension in 2017.



Pensioners are being advised to capitalise on the ongoing registration process at the Guyana Elections Commission offices in their areas to have the new National Identification Cards if they have not done so already.
