The Executive Secretary, Pension Transitional Arrangement Directorate (PTAD), Dr Chioma Ejikeme has said that the commitment of PTAD to the welfare of pensioners remains sacrosanct, and we shall continue our meetings and engagement with the various Pension Unions to ensure quality service delivery.

Dr Ejikeme said this at the 2-day South East Stakeholders Forum held in Awka the Anambra State capital with pensioners and stakeholders from across Abia, Anambra, Enugu, Ebonyi, Imo States.

The Executive Secretary again reminded pensioners that PTAD had fully rolled out the “I Am Alive” confirmation for Pensioners. She also commended the Pension Union Executives who have disseminated information about the I Am Alive Confirmation Solution to their members and have provided assistance to those who need help with confirming their aliveness. However, more needs to be done. “We plead that you help us spread this message to all the nooks and crannies of the Zone and beyond. No pensioner who is alive should be left out of this very critical and important exercise that would determine a pensioner’s eligibility to continue to receive pension.”
