Charles Wali Ag. Director, PaPD

The mandate of the Parastatals Pension Department (PaPD) is to consolidate the activities of the pension related function/activity of government parastatals that are federally funded in a seamless, efficient and expeditious manner. This is in consonance with the PRA 2004 section 43 (1) which states that “Every Board of Trustees established under the Police and Other Agencies Pension Offices (Establishment etc.) Act dissolved under section 99 of this Act shall transfer all the pension funds and assets being held by it before the commencement of the Act to the Pension Department (PTAD) established in respect of the Public Service of the Federation and Federal Capital Territory under section 30 and composed under section 31 of this Act.

Overall, the consolidation will help address and eliminate the ubiquitous cases of late payments, non-enrolment, under-payment suffered by pensioners and their next of kin (NOK).
