The Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate (PTAD) wishes to inform Civil Service Pension Department (CSPD) Pensioners under the Defined Benefit Scheme (DBS) who are yet to confirm their aliveness using the “I Am Alive” confirmation to immediately do so.

CSPD pensioners commenced the exercise on July 1st, 2023 with a 6-month window within which they should confirm that they are still alive and should continue to receive their monthly pension directly into their bank account.

To make sure all pensioners in this category effectively participate in this exercise, the Executive Secretary, Dr Chioma Ejikeme has approved a 1-month extension therefore moving the deadline for CSPD pensioners to confirm aliveness to February 29th, 2024.

In the meantime, PTAD has forwarded the names of the affected pensioners to the state branches and zonal offices of the Nigeria Union of Pensioners (NUP) while letters and SMS notifications have been sent to the affected pensioners.

With the extension, any CSPD Pensioner who does not confirm aliveness will be dropped from the monthly pension payroll. However, they will be automatically restored to the payroll once they confirm aliveness.
